Today in church we were asked if there was one thing in our hearts that we could bring before God what would it be?
First of all my mind was full of prayers requests, the health of people I love and care about. Then I realised the vicar was asking about our hearts. What we want to achieve.
I would confess that i am struggling with direction. My heart and head is full of many different ideas. Issues I want to raise, causes I wish to support. The simple thing is I just don’t know where to begin. Or if this is even the pathway God wants me on.
I sometimes pray for the trumpet call that will lead me where the Lord wants me.
I know I have to be patience but I struggle with that. A lesson I’m learning on a daily basis.
“Because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance.”James 1:3, NIV
So if today I could bring anything before God it would be that he shows me the direction he wants me to go. So that I may work at bringing glory to his name.
” Although the Lord gives you the bread of adversity and the water of affliction, your teachers will be hidden no more; with your own eyes you will see them. Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, “This is the way; walk in it.”
(Isaiah 30:20-21, NIV)”
