Deep In Our Hearts
In our hearts we hold a deep desire, sometimes we don't even know it is there until something or someone wakes it up. This desire we carry that sometimes we can't find is Jesus Christ. We seem to think our desires can be satisfied by material things or even by other people. God says to seek Him and His righteousness . When we seek after God He fulfills all the desires in our hearts. When He does that we start to see His work in us and around us. Sometimes we fall, but God picks us up with His love and His faithfulness and He is always there even when we don't feel Him there because He says in His Word that He will never leave us nor forsake us.
Let's always try to keep our focus on our Lord and let's always keep looking back on our lives to see where God has touched us and our lives. When we do that it helps us to know God is really here with us because we can see His work in our past so we push forward so He can make us stronger. Each trial and storm we go through and get past, that is when we get stronger, because God is stronger in our weakness. A lot of times I to have a hard time focusing on even praying but knowing the Lord and looking back at what He has done in my life builds my faith up.
There is a lot of sorrow in my heart at times, sorrow for my daughter and why things happen the way they do, sorrow for the lost, and my suffering with fibromyalgia, with this physical pain I go through I really get frustrated and depressed, but I know God helps me endure it and to push forward at all times.
