I want to hear God speak to my heart. I want Him to tell me where I am supposed to go and what I am supposed to do. Screw free will. Just tell me so I can follow the path that is pleasing to You, oh Lord. It’s a bit lazy and self serving…but I get tired of getting it wrong and starting all over again. I don’t know if you can relate, gentle reader…but this lady would like some reassurance that what she is doing is right.
Isn’t it funny that we go through half our lives pleasing only ourselves and not caring about what other’s think…but when we finally come to the realization…or we just come to the end of ourselves and hit rock bottom…it’s then that we find our true saving Grace…and His name is Jesus.
When I think about the Love God had for me I can become overwhelmed. My poor fellow church goers probably thought I was having an anxiety attack during Good Friday services because I was so overcome. I mean, snot flowing, crying-snorting-overcome. Not pretty to say the least. It is so extremely gratifying to know that God loved me so much, He sent His son to be Sin, so that I may be forgiven. Jesus became a sacrifice for you and for me. His blood was shed so no other sacrifices needed to be made to atone for our sins to God. Amazing! What an incredible gift.
Still…I want God to speak to my heart. Tell me where He wants me to be. And it is such a selfish want and need. Tell God the desires of your heart and He will provide. I know this is true. I longed to get back into ice skating…and He provided an amazing opportunity for me to be able to get back on the ice, with a new pair of skates no less…and it was marvelous. I look forward with anticipation to the winter months (even when it’s -9 outside and even colder in the rink) when I can once again glide across the frozen water. Heaven!
My heart and mind cries out. How may I serve You, oh Lord? How can I help bring about Your Glory and Grace. And I can hear Him…speaking into that still small place in my heart…and He says…Be Still Child, and know that I am God. (Psalm 46:10)
So Thank You, Father God. I know You are my heavenly Father. You guide my steps and light my path. You are the author and the finisher. I will praise You all the days of my life. Hallelujah and Amen!
Peace be with you, brothers and sisters. May the light of our Lord and Savior shine upon you today and give you divine inspiration, intervention, inclination…whatever your need may be today. I pray our Heavenly Father speaks into your heart and lets loose your dream. I ask for this in Jesus name, Amen.
