What are the desires of your heart?

Do you have desires deep in your heart that some people might not even know about?

Do you have hopes and dreams that are buried deep that you are even afraid to acknowledge with the fear they may never come true?

I love this verse

“Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart.” Psalms 37:4

DELIGHT in the Lord and HE with GIVE YOU the DESIRES in your heart that you and him may only know about. But he knows. He knows your heart and if you spend time with him he will deliver.

“The plans of God are only revealed in the presence of God.”

I am reading through a prayer challenge book called “Draw the Circle.” It is by the same other who wrote “Circle Maker.” He talks about praying circles about your hopes, dreams, desires, and wants. It’s about being persistent and trusting that God will provide. Sometimes he doesn’t answer our prayers the way we want him too but he answers them in a better way. Sometimes the answer is no, and sometimes it’s yes. With that he has our best interests in mind.

He knows the deep desires of your heart and he wants you to pray into them. Sometimes patience is required because things don’t happen on our timing but in God’s. And that’s how it should be. He knows all the details. He sees everything we cannot see. Imagine trying to do a puzzle with your eyes closed and some of the pieces missing. You will never be able to complete it. But God has all the pieces lined up in front of him and he can see everything! So why are you not trusting him with all that you are and the desires and dreams of your heart. He knows what they are, but he is wants you to pray into them.

Pray circles around your desires. I am doing that now and I am writing it down. Writing your prayers and desires down is helpful for later when you can go back and see how God connected the dots and how he answered your prayers! He most likely will answer them in ways you are not expecting.

“When we pray regularly, irregular things happen on a regular basis.” (Draw the Circle).

Seek God’s face every day. Bring him your hopes and dreams and desires. He has a plan! You must be patient, trust him, but take action by praying!

Dream BIG

Something I am learning is how to dream big. Dreams that are so big they are impossible without God!

big dreams

In January, God told me to dream big and I have been trying to figure out what my dreams are ever since. In figuring out my dreams, I am realizing what my passions are.

 

My passion is to be a life coach. I want to be someone people can come to, to encourage them and help them along their life journey to create goals and accomplish those goals and attain the dreams they have.

 

While I was on the World Race, I had the opportunity to walk alongside people on their journey, encouraging them, asking them needed questions, pointing them toward their end goal or reminding them to stay focused on the present and I LOVED it! It wasn’t until my World Race coach told me I should become a life coach that I knew what I was doing and what I loved actually had a name and a profession! Who knew?!

 

With discovering my passion I am learning how to dream. I want to have a career in life coaching and make it my own. I also want to have a beach house where people can come for a place of rest and enjoy God’s beautiful creation. Sitting on the back porch with a cup of coffee in their hand while looking out over the ocean and sitting in the peace and presence of God! Doesn’t that sound wonderful?

I know I can dream bigger. I know this is only a fraction of the dreams I can have with God on my side.

Are you a dreamer?

God wants us to dream. He wants us to do big things for his kingdom. We must believe that anything is possible with God by our side.

 set a Dream

In Genesis 12:1-3, God tells Abram that he will bless him and his name with be known among the nations

“Now the Lord said to Abram, ‘Go from your country and your kindred and your father’s house to the land that I will show you. And I will make of you a great nation, and I will bless you and make your name great, so that you will be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and him who dishonors you I will curse, and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.’ ”

 

God didn’t say it would be easy. Along the way to your dreams you will have people who will try to bring you down and stir you away from your dream. They will make fun of you, be negative, but don’t let that come between you and your dream!

 Confidence

Proverbs 16:3 “Commit your work to the Lord, and your plans will be established.”

 

Have dreams, and make sure they are according to God’s plan. How do you do that, you may ask? Well, ask him! We can talk to God like we talk to a person standing right beside us. We have access to him 24/7. Sit and be still and listen to the voice of the Lord. He will tell you what to do. And if you spend time with him and delight in him, your heart and his heart will be in tune and his desires will be your desires.

 

Psalm 37:4 “Delight yourself in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart.”

 

DREAM GOD-SIZED DREAMS!

You can do it!
