Psalm 32:6 hcs

flood

God is not hidden from us, but we may not be able to find Him.
If our hearts are hard and stubborn we have put a wall up.
We have to tear the wall down with recognition of and grief for our sin. 
When are our hearts are soft and humble that is the time to seek Him.

Has there been a time when it seemed God wasn’t hearing your prayers?
Is it possible you only wanted to hear what you wanted to hear not what He had to say?

Ephesians 5:15-16 esv

walker

It doesn’t matter whether we are exciting and extraordinary
or plain and lowly.
What matters is that we are mindful of where we are going
and what we are doing.
We are given only so many days,
we are to use them thoughtfully and intentionally.

This verse makes me think of all the time I waste.
What about you?

Hosea 10:12 nlt

rock-80074_640

It takes time and hard work to have a good harvest.
It starts with preparing the ground and planting good seeds.
Then the ground needs nourishing and the seeds nurturing.
There is no rushing the harvest, it will come when it’s time.

Have you prepared your heart for the planting of good seeds?
What seeds are you nourishing and nurturing this year?

Ecclesiastes 3:11 niv

eternity

In God’s timing, all things are beautiful.
But we have the world in our hearts and do not understand
the times of the beautiful things He has made.
We will not understand while our hearts are divided.

My answer to the following question has given me pause…
…and made me sad

How much of your heart is given to God and how much to the world?

Ecclesiastes 3:6 nlt

think

There are those who spend their whole life searching for something.
They continue to search even after they have found it.
When we find Jesus it is time to stop searching for Him
and time to start searching to know Him.

Have you found what you were looking for?
What are you going to do now?

Blessings this day of grace,patricia
