Heal My Heart

Break my heart for what breaks Yours

Everything I am for Your kingdom's cause

As I walk from earth into eternity.

A Humbling Experience

I read a devotional recently that captured my attention and made me think about the state of my heart. It said "if you ask for things from life instead of from God, you ask amiss; that is, you ask out of your desire for self-fulfillment. The more you fulfill yourself the less you will seek God." 

It is a humbling experience to knock at God's door. 

We are asking for His very best for us - which may not be what we have in mind. 

Being a true follower of Christ means getting into a position where we are seeking God, not self-fulfillment. 

We praise him in the storm 

and we choose joy in the waiting.

When You Wait, You Learn to Trust

I love these words by my wonderful friend Shelly Calcagno. 

Seasons of waiting (or patient endurance as God has taught me to name it) gives us a choice. A choice to get mad and throw our hands in the air and say "I don't understand you God!"... Or to choose to trust Him. 

When you are reminded of the true nature of God, and believe He wants His best for you, the wait is a blessing. 

Is it possible your waiting is His best for you right now? 

Don't settle for anything but God's best. 

Don't rush your dreams or goals based on your agenda. 

Don't cultivate a heart of worry - remember, worry is the absence of trust. 

Patiently endure this season of waiting while trusting the One who knows your heart and will guide your every step. 

He is good!
