Lately I’ve been praying some new prayers inspired by a blog that I read the other day; as a result I’ve decided that I want to live my life in a different way.
I’ve decided that I want to live life from a heart that is overflowing.
I’ve decided that I want to serve from a heart that’s over flowing.
I’ve decided that I want to love from a heart that’s over flowing.
I’ve decided that I want to give from a heart that’s over flowing.
Not because Christian culture says I should. Not because I want to get something from someone or from God.
I think when God created humans he did it from a heart that was over flowing with love, life and who knows what other good things! I don’t think he created the first family out of lack or loneliness, but out of a heart that was full and over flowing with love.
I can’t help but think he’s wants the same for us too. A heart that is full of love and Him.
Not looking for other people to fill us up but looking to Him.
What is your heart full of?
Yourself? Things that other people have said about you?
Why do you serve?
To ensure your salvation? Or because the pastor says you should? Because you feel obligated?
My prayer for you is that you would live, love and enjoy life from a heart that is overflowing.
“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.” John 10:10
