A short Tuesday reflection.
Desire. To open our desires before the Lord–completely and transparently–and to have real conversation about them: I think the Lord craves these conversations with us. The more reconciled we become to His original heart for us, the more this dialogue critically matters. This is a regular, inward hunger in me so often these days: to truly examine the desires of my heart, and to examine them before the Spirit of the Lord, to have them proven, tested and realized.
This video is black because I’m recording with a migraine, but the heart is there nonetheless. Were not our hearts burning?…
This was a soul-tending day—but it’s possible I’m a rare breed in considering house projects, yard work and family time as “soul-tending.” But truly–as I lay here tonight, I am fully tended. What a gift.
Video #200! YEAH!
I often hear us telling the Lord “we want more.” I’m not altogether sure we’ve soberly considered what we’re asking for.
Imagine the horror: the girl who likes to think being taught that sometimes, pausing to think is the inferior response.
That said, this is hard work. I literally just want to Facebook sheerly out of reflex. Gracious sakes. Haha–oh well–I ended up seeing a sweet encouraging post from a dear friend, so it must have been a Holy Spirit reflex! *chuckle*
