Every single day I find my mind wandering to the “what if” and my heart casually strolls deep into my idealistic and unrealistic desires. These are without a doubt the reasons why it is hard for me to grasp that God is intricately woven into my everyday life. Writing the script to my future is a breeze, to dream without bounds and with a kind of reckless abandonment that ignores responsibility is a daily practice.
Even through the tousled ideas and dreams of my heart the Lord still carefully chisels out a path for me in His plans. The gracious God that He is, His involvement in my life shows that He is constantly answering prayers, the ones spoken and the ones hidden in my heart. This allows me freedom in my petitions… the liberty to speak of all my hearts desires and needs- even when they are eternally unrealistic.
I am God of both intricate detail and overflowing abundance. When you entrust the details of your life to Me, you are surprised by how thoroughly I answer your petitions. I take pleasure in hearing your prayers, so feel free to bring Me all your requests. Moreover, your faith is strengthened as you see how precisely I respond to specific prayers.
Because I am infinite in all My ways, you need not fear that I will run out of resources. Abundance is at the very heart of who I am. Come to me in joyful expectation of receiving all you need- and sometimes more. I delight in showering blessings on My beloved children. Come to Me with open hands and heart, ready to receive all I have for you.
joyful expectation. open hands. open heart.
