I’ve found that it has many recesses, hidden doors, passageways, false rooms, winding stairs, motives, reasons, movements, deliberations and strong rooms. I think that’s why Jeremiah said, “The heart is deceitful above all things and beyond cure. Who can understand it?” I have heard … More To the unknown heart
“So heavenly-minded that you’re of no earthly good”. I love that phrase, even though I’m not sure exactly what it means.
