Where you at?

Hey friends.  I have a question for you.  Please know it comes from my heart.  It’s a question I feel Father, God has been asking me.  Where are you at in your relationship with Jesus?  Are you running from bible study to bible study, task to task and even to event? Or are you taking practical steps to deepen your relationship with Jesus?

One of the primary ways we connect to Jesus is through scripture and prayer.  I know this might sound like just another thing to do, but it’s really about your heart.  Jeremiah 17:9 teaches that the heart is more deceitful than all else and is desperately sick.  Our hearts are desperately sick and Jesus has come to bring healing.  We need scripture and prayer to teach us truth about our value, identity and purpose.  Left alone, we will pursue our own desires and interests to try to fulfill those needs.   We’re going to fill ourselves up with things that aren’t true.

For me, this involves getting up while the house is still quite, getting my cup of coffee and connecting with Jesus.  I pray about my heart.  I pray about truths I see in scripture.  I pray about my children and husband and friends and all the conversations that I’m going to have with them.  I pray about things that have happened with them and how it weights on my heart.  I pray through my calendar for the day and I mentally, emotionally and physically give it all to God.  It is all His and I ask him to do a great work through me that brings glory to Him. Will you go to Him today and give him your heart?  He’ll take it in exactly the form it’s in right now … no sprucing up needed!
