“Whatever things you desire when you pray, believe you receive [them] and you shall have [them].” Mark 11:24
Good day to all…
and thank you for dropping by Leisure Lane to say ‘hello’.
One of the most joyous times for me is early morning. Especially when the sunbeams gently stream through the window and dance with the shadows. It always invites me to sit peacefully and listen to the quietness of God. It is at these times more than most that He speaks to my spirit and invites me to speak to His.
Today was such a day, and in such a day the Lord reminded me of ‘desire’ – the desires that are in my heart. Those desires that are for my well-being and the well-being of others. And he reminded me that if I desire it, then He placed it within me. His Spirit placed within my spirit the desires of my heart, and that I should be at peace with that knowledge.
I was reminded that I am co-creator with Him; that He wishes for me to relinquish the struggle within, and to bring my desires to Him when I pray, believe I have already received them (that is to take them when I pray), and they shall manifest for me. Simple teaching of Jesus. So why do I, and so many of us, make it complicated? That is a good question that only each of us can answer for ourselves. God already knows. So I answer it and then relinquish it.
My vow to myself and to God, who desires all joy and good things for me, is to relinquish ALL things that do not benefit, uplift, feed, and produce Life in my spirit, soul, and body…to be drawn only to those things which are in His will for me. For I know that in that will be great expectancy and manifestation of joy, peace, harmony, balance, and fulfilled purpose.
I hope that you will find a part of the day that will bring you into the quietness of God. And throughout the day, stop and take a moment to extend that grace back to Him. For that is the first desire of the heart.
Until next time, may happy days abound.
