I am lost.
I do not have a specific passion right now - in the past it has been as if I am on fire - for coaching, teaching, jewelery - what ever I was doing - I was on FIRE - the Lord had placed a Passion for them in me.
Today, I feel like all my flames have been put out. Even the new opportunities I have been working on are just little lights - not even flickering.
I feel so BLAH.
my reading in Joshua this morning:
"Now fear the Lord and serve him with all faithfulness. Throw away the gods of your forefathers worshiped beyond the River and in Egypt, and serve the Lord.But if serving the Lord seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods of your forefathers served beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord." Then the people answered, "Far be it from us to forsake the Lord to serve other gods! " Joshua 24:14-16
my prayer: Father God, I love You with all my heart, and I choose to serve You this day and everyday. Lord, build in me a passion and a heart that is on fire for you - in all areas of my life. Continue to build the flames of passion where You desire for me to be. I bring you my pleas for help and strength, guide me on the paths that are pleasing to you. Help me to see your heart in all things. Father, go before me in all things, that I may know your hand is there and you are pleased. In Jesus' name Amen.
So am I more clear on anything - no. But I have taken my heart to the throne. And we serve an awesome God who love us and will guide me along this journey.
SO then I read JOEL ...
He Makes All things New
"…and He who is seated on the throne said, See! I make all things new…" (Revelation 21:5, AMP).
Today's Word from Joel and Victoria
When God puts a dream in your heart, when He puts a promise on the inside, He deposits within you everything you need to accomplish that dream. He wouldn't give you the desire to do something without giving you the ability to fulfill it. In fact, the scripture tells us that God gives us the desires of our heart. In other words, He puts the desire inside of us and then works with us to bring it to pass. Oftentimes, people set out to accomplish their dreams, but they face a setback or disappointment, and then they feel like their time has passed. But let me tell you today, no matter where you've come from, no matter what's happened in your past, God wants to make you new. He wants to give you a "do over," a fresh start. If you feel like you've missed opportunities in your life, if you feel like your time has passed, remember, today is a new day. You are a new person, and God has new opportunities in store for you. If one dream has died, it's time to dream a new dream.
A Prayer for Today
Father in heaven, thank You for making all things new. I give You this day and invite You to have Your way in every area of my life. I choose to receive all the promises You have in store for me. In Jesus' Name. Amen
The Word is good .... and I am certain the Lord will fan my flames and I once again will be ON FIRE!
GRACE AND PEACE!
