I have come to realize with my restless heart is craving me to be quiet and still. We can't hear God if we are constantly on the move going and doing the next thing without seeking him. I want to train myself to be quiet. I want so desperately to train myself to not open my mouth in arrogance or complaining either..whew it's hard but a must! Let's guard ourselves from the complaining as it's just toxic and can control our thoughts so quickly. Most importantly I want to put GOD first and let him order my days.
What if we took our priorities and rearranged them to what was really important to God? What would our days look like? What if we seriously stopped to be still and listen to God to where he wants us next? What would that look like in our lives? Think of all the possibilities of how he could use you. I don't know about you but I would love to be used more than just for my cleaning skills:)
I have a prayer for you and me
I want to live this day abundantly, seeing all there is to see, doing all there is to do for your kingdom. Help me not to be distracted by future concerns as it's in your hands. Each day help me to see as a gift, and help me to live within the confines of today. Much of my energy for abundant living spills over the timeline into tomorrow's worries or past regrets. The remaining energy is sufficient only for limping through the day, not for living it to the fullest. Please retrain my focus on your presence that's always with me and help me put aside the distractions that keep me from receiving abundant life which flows freely from you.
This may seem overwhelming to fight off all the distractions that keep us from God. My first step is to get my body in the right place and be still to listen closely on what the holy spirit is leading me to do next. Let's truly uncover the blind spots in our lives and surrender them to the Lord! Think of the endless possibilities it may bring!
