Thoughts on my heart

Do you ever question things that God has spoken to you in advance?
Have you ever met someone who made you doubt what you really wanted or made you lose track of what God had told you in the first place?
That somehow in our own accord we make something up that there is not or we just start to settle for something that is not God's best or according to what's really in your heart.
I get so wrapped up in life, emotions, friendships, schedules, and my own world that I lose sight to the writing God inscripted on my heart.

I realized tonight that I am in need of God to renew those dreams and words he has placed in my heart...especially in preparation for the future. Right now, there are all these distractions that are gaining my attention. What I really need to do is run to the Holy of Holies. Mary, the mother of Jesus, was a woman who stored all things in her heart. I bet that when she saw Jesus getting beaten and nailed to the cross, the Father reminded her of the memories and prophecies He had laid on her heart years before.

My counselor at camp once told me to never lose sight of the dreams and words God had placed in me. What a good reminder that is...

What about you? Are there words you've let drift away in the whirlwind of life? Have you lost focus of what God had intended for you? Take some time in the next week and let God probe your heart. I know that I will be setting some time aside to get refocused and reassured in my walk with the Lord. My prayer is that you will regain life from God's words to you and that you will be renewed... to the Lord unhindered and in complete awe of His grace...for you will never be the same.

Esther Joy, as you spend those precious times with God this week, may you "fan into flame the gift of God which is in you..." And may you "guard the good deposit that was entrusted to you--guard it with the help of the Holy Spirit who lives in us." (2 Timothy 1:6,14) Guard--and fan! That's part of holding His word to you as a precious gift. May God's words to you be sweet to your ears; may His presence bring you life and hope. I love you.
