My Heart's Desire
God, give me a restless heart that is not
satisfied with anything other than your
awesome presence in my life.
Jesus, give me longing eyes that desire to see you face to face.
My Lord, may I keep pursuing you passionately and grow in knowledge of who you are, so your character may be developed in me.
Jesus, I long to know you more intimately than ever before.
When troubles come, may I hold fast that you are my most firm foundation & greatest encourager.
My heart is homesick for you and I long for your Presence in my life. There is no other place
or person I'd rather dwell with than you.
When my heart wanders, O' Heavenly Father, make me homesick like a child feels being away at camp, and call me back to you.
God, when I have strayed from you, please don't send me back to Egypt, but send me by your grace to the Promise Land that you have waiting for me.
Jesus, only you can cut the callouses that are thick upon my heart. You can set me free to love you with all my being.
I am amazed at how you formed my heart, you see inside to the depths beyond the shallow outer layers. You are the one who can peel away the layers of sin and hardness within and cause me to experience the most beautiful expression of love when you chose to do the Father's will and lay down your life so I could live.
Jesus, I know You are always right there and that You will never let me down. For Your ways are perfect even when I, in my humanness can't understand Your divine plan.
You are a straight-narrow God. There is none like you in all the earth. You took the chaos of my life and turned it into a Genesis Week, full of new beginnings.
I desire Your "Holy Stamp of Approval" upon my heart because I delight in serving You.
Beloved Savior, I thank You for taking up residence in my heart, because of You I live and one day I will reside with you in heaven for all eternity.
May your love be the constant beat of my heart that flows with grace and mercy through my veins and touches the hearts of many who may cross my path along life's journey way. Amen.
