Your Heart Desires

The devotional reads:

 

If you have been under a lot of stress lately, I encourage you to take an honest inventory of not only what you are doing, but why you are doing it. If fear is the reason you’re involved, eliminate some stress by getting your priorities straight. Your priority is not to keep everyone else in your life happy by doing all the things they expect; it is to live a life that is pleasing to God and one that you can enjoy.

Too many people are not living their dreams because they are living their fears. In other words, instead of doing things out of their heart, they do them because they are afraid of what will happen if they don’t. “Someone will get angry! I will get left out! People will talk about me!” It is time that you started being the person you really want to be. It is time to reach for your dreams.

Pray:

Lord, I will delight myself in You today. You know the desires of my heart, and I entrust my dreams to You. Help me to be the person You created me to be. Amen.

Scripture: Psalms 37:4-6

4 Delight thyself also in the Lord; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart. 5 Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass. 6 And he shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light, and thy judgment as the noonday.

Here’s what I have to say —

The desires of the heart can be such a strong feeling.  The heart wants what the heart wants and it’s important to make sure that we indulge in that every now and again. Remember ladies, it’s never a bad thing to treat yourself.  Putting yourself first is they key to a healthy mental state. How else are you supposed to give others what they need if you don’t have what it takes inside of yourself? People pour into others and are supposed to be poured back into. Always take time to refuel. ♥
