God has really been moving in my heart this weekend. I spent some time with friend who happens to struggle with many things that I do. As she was sharing her struggle, my heart screamed “I do the same thing”! I have a hard time finishing anything!! There are times that God puts a passion in my heart, I don’t respond quick enough, and the passion slowly ebbs. Usually my passion fails because I dont think He is big enough, or I begin to question when the road gets hard. One of my favorite quotes right now is by George Lucas. “You have to find something that you love enough to be able to take risks, jump over hurdles and break through the brick walls that are always going to be placed in front of you. If you don’t have that kind of feeling for what it is you are doing, you’ll stop at the first giant hurdle.”
The thing I am most passionate about is prayer. I feel strongly that we should be a people who pray and seek His face, especially in the world we currently live in. Yet in my down time, I don’t pray. Well I don’t take time out of my life to pray. I am crazy good at the bullet prayers, and I even throw in a few praises here and there(that way I feel even better about myself)! This past week as I have started those bullet prayers, the Holy Spirit has shut my mouth, my mind everything. I have no words and I feel heavily convicted that I can’t even stop what I am doing for two seconds to pray for this! But I have yet to really head that conviction so now He is making it blatantly clear
When I came home today this is what I read. “So here’s what I think: The best thing you can do right now is to finish what you started last year and not let those good intentions grow stale. Your heart’s been in the right place all along. You’ve got what it takes to finish it up, so go to it. Once the commitment is clear, you do what you can, not what you can’t. The heart regulates the hands.” 2 Cor. 8:10-13 (The Message) Ok, ok I get it, He has gifted me with a heart and a desire for prayer and I need to start using it as the sword that it is. So if you think of it, keep me accountable, ask me how my prayer time is, and if you want join me!
