I’m Hungry…

Hunger…a craving or urgent need for….

Are you a person after God’s heart? Are you curious about what makes Him tick?  How do you find the answers?

A hunger for God doesn’t just come to us one day.  It must be cultivated.  You begin with your Bible reading…that’s were we listen and God speaks.

“Blessed is the man who doesn’t not walk in the counsel of the wicked or stand in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of mockers.  But his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night.  He is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields it’s fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither.  Whatever he does prospers.”  (Psalms 1:1-3, NIV)

Another aspect is prayer.  If reading scripture just doesn’t do it for you.  Ask the Lord to make scripture come alive and be at work in your life.   

“I love the Lord, for he heard my voice; he heard my cry for mercy.  Because he turned his ear to me, I will call on him as long as I live. (Psalms 116:1-2, NIV)

Slow down and think about what you’ve read.  What you’ve uncovered and how it applies to your life.

“Do not let this Book of the Law depart from your mouth; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to everything written in it.  Then you will be prosperous and successful.” (Joshua 1:8, NIV)

Love Heart, you must keep at it.  Your hunger might not surface right away.  You’re working on a life change not a quick fix.    

Keep filling yourself with the God’s word, prayer and reflection.  It will bring about transformation. ~ Debra

 

 

Resolution:  A pledge a person makes to one or more individual goals.

Have you ever made a New Year’s Resolution?  I know that I must have but as I sit in this New Year and think over the past years I can’t remember a single one.

 

I’ve heard that if you write down your goals you are more apt to reach them.     

Most importantly…pray and stay in the word!  Seek His will for your life and then put a plan into action to reach those goals.  Let’s face it…it will not work unless He is in it.

“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ …‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.” (Mark 12:30-31, NIV)

Resolution:

  1. Seek His will through prayer and daily Bible meditation.
  2. Write down my goals
  3. Seek a plan of action

That’s simple enough! Praying for each of you a wonderful New Year seeking Him!  ~Deb

 

 

Relationship

December 31, 2011 — Leave a comment

As I lay in bed last night praying over my family, I was thinking what do I pray for them for the coming New Year?

Riches, health, peace…as I lay praying and seeking it came to me.  A relationship, more than anything else I would love for my family to have a growing relationship with God. 

A connection, bond, link, rapport!

What a great way to start off the New Year reading God’s word, praying, having quite time and participating in worship.

Read God’s word and mediate on what we read:   Psalms 119:97, 2 Corinthians 10:3-5, Philippians 4:8, and Colossians 3:1-2. 

Spend time alone with God and listen:  Psalm 119:15, 23,46,105, Mark 1:35, I Corinthians 10:11-13, James 5:3.

Prayer and how we should pray:  Luke 11:1-4, Matthew 6:5-13, 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18, John 16:23, 26-27.  

Worship: Hebrews 10:24-25, Hebrews 12:28, Psalms 134:2 

I pray for you and yours a relationship with our God, our creator! ~Deb
