Harden My Heart Quotes By Anton Myrer

Harden My Heart Quotes By Stephen Kendrick

Grieving the Holy Spirit (Ephesians 4:30). Our anger grieves God's Spirit, not only producing bitter fruit but quenching the fruit of the Spirit in our lives. Rather than operating with love, joy, and peace toward others, a bitter person becomes hateful, negative, and restless, closing off his heart toward others. Bitter people become very unlike themselves. The most loving and joyful people in the world can become hateful, irrational pessimists if they let bitterness take root and don't forgive. Believe it or not, bitterness even hurts us physically. "A joyful heart is good medicine, but a broken spirit dries up the bones" (Proverbs 17:22). The tension of trying to contain it can harden our facial features and make us lose the radiance of our countenance, even causing a chemical imbalance in our bodies and lowering our resistance to disease. — Stephen Kendrick

Harden My Heart Quotes By Harry Crosby

I stamp out vast empires. I crush palaces in my rigid hands. I harden my heart against churches.

Harden My Heart Quotes By Richelle E. Goodrich

Harden My Heart Quotes By James Patterson

Harden My Heart Quotes By Robert Dodsley

The tears of the compassionate are sweeter than dewdrops falling from roses on the bosom of the earth. Shut not thine ear, therefore, against the cries of the poor, neither harden thine heart against the calamities of the innocent. — Robert Dodsley

Harden My Heart Quotes By G.K. Chesterton

There are some refusals which, though they may be done what is called conscientiously, yet carry so much of their whole horror in the very act of them, that a man must in doing them not only harden but slightly corrupt his heart. One of them was the refusal of milk to young mothers when their husbands were in the field against us. Another is the refusal of fairy tales to children. — G.K. Chesterton

Harden My Heart Quotes By Jonathan Edwards

When God is here spoken of as hardening some of the children of men, it is not to be understood that God by any positive efficiency hardens any man's heart. There is no positive act in God, as though he put forth any power to harden the heart. To suppose any such thing would be to make God the immediate author of sin. God is said to harden men in two ways: by withholding the powerful influences of his Spirit, without which their hearts will remain hardened, and grow harder and harder; in this sense he hardens them, as he leaves them to hardness. And again, by ordering those things in his providence which, through the abuse of their corruption, become the occasion of their hardening. Thus God sends his word and ordinances to men which, by their abuse, prove an occasion of their hardening. — Jonathan Edwards

Harden My Heart Quotes By Dolly Parton

I have to not harden my heart, because I want to stay open to feel things. — Dolly Parton

Harden My Heart Quotes By Lailah Gifty Akita

Harden My Heart Quotes By Van Harden

I had treated my temporary earthly problems so emotionally and seriously that they became major energy zappers, brain drains, and heart breakers. I knew I was a Christian living in this world, but things didn't really sink in until the concept of the purple wedge made me 'see' it and put things into perspective. — Van Harden

Harden My Heart Quotes By Alexander McCall Smith

Love was like rain; there could be periods of drought when it seemed that love would never return, would never make its presence felt again. In such times, the heart could harden, but then, just as droughts broke, so too could love suddenly appear, and heal just as quickly and completely as rain can heal the parched land. — Alexander McCall Smith

Harden My Heart Quotes By Yasmin Mogahed

He doesn't harden it. — Yasmin Mogahed

Harden My Heart Quotes By Margaret Peterson Haddix

Unlike my mother, my father does not cry quietly. His wails roll out like a wave of pain, and I scramble to roll up my window. My mother cannot hear that. I cannot bear to hear it myself. I am not used to my father's crying. I've had no time to harden my heart against him. — Margaret Peterson Haddix

Harden My Heart Quotes By William Mountford

It would not be more unreasonable to transplant a favorite flower out of black earth into gold dust than it is for a person to let money-getting harden his heart into contempt, or into impatience, of the little attentions, the merriments and the caresses of domestic life. — William Mountford

Harden My Heart Quotes By Katherine J. Walden

I have learned that bitterness, resentment and self-pity do nothing to lift the gloomy clouds of a spiritual February in my life. If anything, these sins only harden the soil of my heart, making it difficult for new growth to spring forth at God's appointed time. — Katherine J. Walden

Harden My Heart Quotes By Wilhelm Reich

For we have come to share in Christ, h if indeed we hold our original confidence firm to the end. 15. As it is said, b "Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion. — Anonymous

Harden My Heart Quotes By Nancy Cobb

My grandmother's unkindness, for instance, was the result of repressed grief over three deaths: her parents, before she was twelve, and her firstborn child. I don't recall ever seeing her smile. She was critical of everything and everyone. Table manners, posture, diction, wardrobe. My aunt, her mother's staunchest defender, often reminded us that my grandmother suffered from accumulated sorrow, bottled up since childhood and cloaked in intellect and intolerance as she grew older. She was never able to grieve fully or mourn the amassed losses, my aunt had said. If we repress our grief, over time, it's bound to harden the heart. — Nancy Cobb

Harden My Heart Quotes By Van Harden

[God] wants your adoration. He wants your confessions. He wants your thankfulness. He wants your requests. But most of all, He wants you and your love for Him with all your heart, strength, mind, and soul. What a joy it is to be so wanted by the Creator of everything. — Van Harden

Harden My Heart Quotes By R.C. Sproul

Harden My Heart Quotes By Charles Haddon Spurgeon

Law and terrors do but harden All the while they work alone; But a sense of blood-bought pardon Will dissolve a heart of stone. — Charles Haddon Spurgeon

Harden My Heart Quotes By Rohinton Mistry

Does it stand, but not straight enough? Is there a bend in the tool? Leaning left like the Marxist-Leninist Party? To the right, like the Jan Sangh fascists? Or wobbling mindlessly in the middle, like the Congress Party? Fear not, for it can be straightened! Does it refuse to harden even with rubbing and massage? Then try my ointment, and it will become hard as the government's heart! All your troubles will vanish with this amazing ointment made from the organs of these wild animals! Capable of turning all men into engine-drivers! Punctual as the trains in the Emergency! Back and forth you will shunt with piston power every night! The railways will want to harness your energy! Apply this ointment once a day, and your wife will be proud of you! Apply it twice a day, and she will have to share you with the whole block! — Rohinton Mistry

Harden My Heart Quotes By John Locke

The tendency to cruelty
should be watched in
children and if they
incline to any such
cruelty, they should be
taught the contrary
usage. For the custom
of tormenting and killing
other animals will, by
degrees, harden their
hearts even toward man.
Children should from
the beginning, be
brought up in an
abhorrence of killing or
tormenting living
beings. — John Locke

Harden My Heart Quotes By Theodore Parker

Want and wealth equally harden the human heart, as frost and fire are both alien to the human flesh. Famine and gluttony alike drive away nature from the heart of man. — Theodore Parker

Harden My Heart Quotes By Charles Spurgeon

I am certain that to preach the wrath of God with a hard heart, a cold lip, a tearless eye, and an unfeeling spirit is to harden men, not benefit them. — Charles Spurgeon

Harden My Heart Quotes By Patricia H. Graham

What hypocrites are we as caretakers of the Earth? We profess to love Mother Nature in one voice and pollute her gardens in the next. When man does not commit his love for her, his heart becomes harden while ignoring his responsibilities to her. — Patricia H. Graham

Harden My Heart Quotes By Danielle Crittenden

So long as we insist upon defining our identities only in terms of our work, so long as we try to blind ourselves to the needs of our children and harden our hearts against them, we will continue to feel torn, dissatisfied, and exhausted ... . The guilt we feel for neglecting our children is a byproduct of our love for them. It keeps us from straying too far from them, for too long. Their cry should be more compelling than the call from the office. — Danielle Crittenden

Harden My Heart Quotes By Christopher Hitchens

In some ways I feel sorry for racists and for religious fanatics, because they so much miss the point of being human, and deserve a sort of pity. But then I harden my heart, and decide to hate them all the more, because of the misery they inflict and because of the contemptible excuses they advance for doing so. — Christopher Hitchens

Harden My Heart Quotes By Rita Mae Brown

Life is unjust, people can be cruel, and yet if you harden your heart, you will lose what little love there is in this world. — Rita Mae Brown

Harden My Heart Quotes By Colleen Hoover

I've learned some thing about my heart.
It can break.
It can ripped apart.
It can harden and freeze.
It can stop. Completely.
It can shatter in to million pieces.
It can explode.
It can die.
The only thing that made it start beating again?
The moment you open your eyes — Colleen Hoover

Harden My Heart Quotes By Helen Macdonald

I learned that to harden your heart was not the same as not caring. — Helen Macdonald

Harden My Heart Quotes By Robert Burns

Why has a religious turn of mind always a tendency to narrow and harden the heart? — Robert Burns

Harden My Heart Quotes By Debra Anastasia

With every step she felt herself harden. She was a walking statue by the time she hit the police station's exit.
She had a purpose again. Hate.
Eve cuddled hate to her heart like a baby - like the only baby she'd ever have. Eve despised reliving the accident, but she had to do it to get harder. She needed to be angrier. — Debra Anastasia

Harden My Heart Quotes By John Thorn

As the game enters its glorious final weeks, the chill of fall signals the reality of defeat for all but one team. The fields of play will turn brown and harden, the snow will fall, but in the heart of the fan sprouts a sprig of green. — John Thorn

Sufferings helps to soften the harden heart. — Lailah Gifty Akita

Harden My Heart Quotes By Morgan Rhodes

But perhaps a heart takes experience and time to harden. — Morgan Rhodes

Let us not put off from one moment to another (what we should do) because the (next moment) is not yet ours. — Pio Of Pietrelcina

Harden My Heart Quotes By Lailah Gifty Akita

It is better to have a tender than harden human heart. — Lailah Gifty Akita

Harden My Heart Quotes By Theodore Parker

Wealth and want equally harden the human heart. — Theodore Parker

Harden My Heart Quotes By Bisco Hatori

I think the love between a child and parent is wonderful. You know, Mei ... I haven't seen my mother for over two years. I used to live with her ... but now I live with my father. I used to be sad and wonder why it happened ... but parents have a lot of things they have to deal with too. I saw how they were suffering ... and I know they both love me a lot. You can't let loneliness harden your heart. Mei, you know ... Misuzu loves you, don't you? — Bisco Hatori

Harden My Heart Quotes By Billy Graham

It is possible through sin to harden our hearts against God so long that we lose all desire for God. The Scripture says: "God also gave them up" [Romans 1:24 KJV]. — Billy Graham

Harden My Heart Quotes By Paul Washer

I would not send my child to a vacation Bible school in 99.9% of the Baptist churches in America. Have some teacher that doesn't even understand anything about the gospel of Jesus Christ, ask those little children, 'How many of you want to go to Heaven?' and damn most of them! Harden their heart to the gospel with some silly profession of faith because it was a silly proclamation of the gospel! It brought no genuine repentance, it brought no faith; it's no different than the Roman church that baptizes every infant that is born. — Paul Washer

Harden My Heart Quotes By Patience Strong

If you want good roses, sharpen your knife and harden your heart. — Patience Strong

Harden My Heart Quotes By Sabaa Tahir

Perhaps grief is like battle: After experiencing enough of it, your body's instincts take over. When you see it closing in like a Martial death squad, you harden your insides. You prepare for the agony of a shredded heart. And when it hits, it hurts, but not as badly, because you have locked away your weakness, and all that's left is anger and strength. — Sabaa Tahir

Harden My Heart Quotes By A.G. Howard

I harden my glare and my heart. — A.G. Howard

Harden My Heart Quotes By Jeffrey R. Holland

So how do you best respond when mental or emotional challenges confront you or those you love? Above all, never lose faith in your Father in Heaven, who loves you more than you can comprehend ... Never, ever doubt that, and never harden your heart. — Jeffrey R. Holland

Harden My Heart Quotes By Marion Woodman

Rage and bitterness do not foster femininity. They harden the heart and make the body sick. — Marion Woodman

Harden My Heart Quotes By Walter Hagen

You don't have the game you played last year or last week. You only have today's game. It may be far from your best, but that's all you've got. Harden your heart and make the best of it. — Walter Hagen

Harden My Heart Quotes By Joyce Carol Oates

You have hardened your heart against your "American cousin." It was courageous in the memoir to state so clearly how you had to harden your heart against so much, to survive. Americans believe that suffering makes saints of us, which is a joke. Still I realize you have no time for me in your life now. There is no "purpose" to me. Even — Joyce Carol Oates

Harden My Heart Quotes By Ammon Shea

Induratize (v.) To harden the heart. Among the inevitabilities of old age are that the heart is hardened twice; first figuratively, through experience and loss, and then literally, in the form of atherosclerosis. — Ammon Shea

Harden My Heart Quotes By Joel C. Rosenberg

Rather than inserting more Marines and engineers to harden and defend the American Embassy - thus sending an unequivocal message that such an assault against American sovereign territory in the heart of Tehran would never be tolerated again - the bureaucrats back at the White House and State Department had panicked. They'd reduced the embassy's staff from nearly a thousand to barely sixty. The Pentagon had shown a similar lack of resolve. The number of U.S. military forces in-country had been drawn down from about ten thousand active-duty troops to almost none. The only reason Charlie had been sent in - especially as green as he was - was because he happened to be one of the few men in the entire U.S. diplomatic corps who was actually fluent in Farsi. None of the three CIA guys on site even spoke the language. — Joel C. Rosenberg

Harden My Heart Quotes By Tachira Tachi-Ren

Choose to see the pure Soul within all beings, even though they may not see it within themselves. Choose to honor the sovereign reality of all beings, even though their words or actions may hurt you. Choose to transform through ecstasy and Grace, even though drama and trauma may seem more natural to you. Choose to live in this miraculous Now moment, even though nostalgia, regrets and fear may entice you to not be Present. Choose to be a blessing to the World and All Life, even though circumstances may encourage you to harden your heart. Choose to love others, even though it may seem naive. Choose to love God with all your being, and know that this is all that is really required. Choose to Live Heaven. Aliyah Ziondra — Tachira Tachi-Ren

Harden My Heart Quotes By Marie Lu

You cannot harden your heart to the future just because of your past. You cannot use cruelty against yourself to justify cruelty to others. — Marie Lu

Harden My Heart Quotes By Clementine Von Radics

Be merciful until you can't be.
Until you feel your heart begin to harden into a bullet.
Then use that bullet. — Clementine Von Radics

Harden My Heart Quotes By Saint Bernard

Sorrow for sin is indeed necessary, but it should not be an endless preoccupation. You must dwell also on the glad remembrance of God's loving-kindness; otherwise, sadness will harden the heart and lead it more deeply into despair. — Saint Bernard

Harden My Heart Quotes By Anthony De Mello

What is a loving heart? A loving heart is sensitive to the whole of life, to all persons; a loving heart doesn't harden itself to any persons or things. — Anthony De Mello

Harden My Heart Quotes By Albert Camus

The mistake that men make is that they do not believe in theater. Otherwise, they would know that every man is allowed to play thecelestial tragedies and to become god. All he has to do is harden his heart. — Albert Camus

Harden My Heart Quotes By Edmund Spenser

My Love Is Like To Ice, And I To Fire
My love is like to ice, and I to fire;
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolv'd through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
Or how comes it that my exceeding heat
Is not delay'd by her heart-frozen cold;
But that I burn much more in boiling sweat,
And feel my flames augmented manifold!
What more miraculous thing may be told,
That fire, which all things melts, should harden ice;
And ice, which is congeal'd with senseless cold,
Should kindle fire by wonderful device!
Such is the power of love in gentle mind,
That it can alter all the course of kind. — Edmund Spenser
