When I look in the mirror, it’s obvious I’ve changed a lot over the years. It’s called the aging process. And while I can do my best to disguise it in a variety of ways, it will ultimately win. What I can’t see when I look in the mirror, however, is how my heart’s changed because of the joy, pain, failures and experiences it’s been through over the years. I know life has been so difficult at times that I could feel my heart breaking, getting smaller, and hardening. But it never stayed that way for one simple reason: Jesus’ heart kept reaching out to my heart until it overflowed with grace, grew more compassionate and moved more in sync with God’s will. It may be a kind of divine irony, or perhaps it’s just wisdom. But the more your body fails, the stronger your heart can become.
