Letting God speak to our hearts can be both painful and difficult. It is one thing to logically know that God knows us – it is another to feel His knowledge of us in our hearts . We may know that God knows best yet struggle to turns ourselves over to Him. Letting God into ours hearts can feel like we are exposing our most raw, bare self. That can be paralyzingly difficult. The irony is that He already knows every fiber of our being and loves us in spite of whatever that reality is. As long as the world seems content with who we are, it can be easy to choose to be complacent. It is up to us. The choice is always ours. We can let God in and let Him speak to us or we can allow our egos to motivate us and miss out on incredible experiences, joy, and satisfaction. Our egos always push God aside – it is only our hearts that let Him in.
Listening in any conversation – really listening is so important. Listening for and to God’s answers and then taking them to heart is possibly the most important skill that can be learned in life. I have found that deliberately creating time to listen and providing God with opportunities to speak to my heart is a life skill that has blessed my life with incredible abundance and joy.
When I imagine the home of my dreams… It is not a mansion or pretentious or located in a prestigious neighborhood. The home of my dreams could have several shapes and sizes. The most important thing about the home of my dreams is the feel. Brimming with love and fun – the walls would barely contain the depth of love emanating from its core. Just like heaven…it would be a place of Truth, honor and love. I am blessed to live in a home that feels like a home of my dreams!
Our thoughts are a powerful force in our lives…as the scriptures so aptly teach – as a man (woman) thinks so is he/she. How we choose to perceive ourselves, to relate to the world around us, and utilize our life experiences all have to do directly with our thoughts. If you want to make positive changes to yourself and your world – you must first change your thoughts and then not only will you change your paradigm, you will be enabled to make those step-by-step positive changes that you desire! The wonderful thing about the whole process is that when you involve God – the whole process becomes profound!
