Dr. Alex Loyd has developed a wonderful tool to help you understand what your heart issues are, and I highly recommend you take it. It’s called the Heart Issues Finder and after you answer some questions online, you will receive a 10-15-page report personalized to your issues and explaining what healing in those 12 areas looks like.
If you haven’t already taken the Heart Issues Finder, I highly recommend you do so. And if you have taken it but it’s been awhile, take it again. It’s a wonderful way to pinpoint your heart issues and start healing them.
Here’s another way to pinpoint what’s in your heart: pay attention to what you say.
Jesus said, “Whatever is in your heart determines what you say.”–Matthew 12:33b
Our words matter–perhaps eternally.
We will “eat” the fruit of our words—and so will others. (In my work as a Healing Codes Coach/Practitioner, I regularly deal with the destructive effects of words on the hearts and even bodies of my clients. Words can leave invisible wounds that destroy lives.)
Words are a barometer of the heart’s condition. Jesus went on to say, “A good person produces good things from the treasury of a good heart, and an evil person produces evil things from the treasury of an evil heart.”
Want to know what’s in your heart? Pay attention to your words. Are they critical? Perhaps there is unforgiveness or pride in your heart. Do you use foul language? There may be anger lurking inside.
Pay attention to your words, and deal with any heart issues they reveal. Notice other people’s words, too, as indications of what is in the heart.
Words can wound, but they can also heal. With The Healing Codes, we replace the unhealthy beliefs–the lies we’ve come to believe–with the truth. As your heart heals, according to Jesus your words will heal as naturally as a healthy fruit tree produce good fruit for others to enjoy.
