My Submission
Description: “Fix My Heart” is a 40-day devotional that restores the weary-hearted woman through a journey of self-evaluations. The devotions draw from scripture and offer practical ways for living a spirit-lead life, which embraces good over evil.
Snapshots of time precursor the evaluation of one’s heart in Chapters one and in Chapter two. Discussion of living by God’s Ten Commandments is in Chapter three. Using scripture is used to build on the solid rock of Jesus. Chapter four speaks about the transformed life. The remaining devotions discuss the sanctification process and growth in Christian life.
Two Bible verses are the premise of this devotional. These verses are as relevant today as they were thousands of years ago. “Indeed you, Lord, are kind and forgiving, overflowing with gracious love to everyone who calls on you.” Psalm 86:5 NIV and “He renews my strength. He guides me along right paths, bringing honor to his name.” Psalm 23:3 NLT. The devotions encourage women to live in His Light as He teaches them in the Spirit.
As women examine their hearts, they find Jesus is the One who cleanses their hearts and soothes scars with His mercy and forgiveness. This devotional takes women on a journey that restores and fills their hearts with the love of their Savior.

The hunger for righteous living comes from deep within one’s soul and not satisfied until one yields to its calling from within one’s heart. — C.K. Sharpe
