The heart is the seat and center of human life, and is where the issues of the spirit and the will are settled.
I'm anchored to my heart because it beats with the reality of me. We can't be men after God's own heart without being connected to our hearts first.
The heart sends out clues to signal us, like red flags of distress. These waving banners are sent up like flares to warn and attract our attention.
Our hearts are speaking to us; we must listen to hear what they say. They tell our stories—who we are, what we struggle with and why.
The one talent servant said, "I was afraid I would lose your money, so I hid it in the earth." I can clearly see how I can run to the world and hide my talents.

I would think that I at least could define my OWN needs…not so much.We are too close to our need to really know what our actual needs are.
