Desire: a strong feeling of wanting to have something or wishing for something to happen
Who Are You?
That’s the question Christina Marie asked yesterday in her blog post entitled Tunnel Vision. After reading her post, there was the question- Who are you? I sat in awkward silence for a minute and then thought well shoot do I even know me? I mean I know that I’m the daughter of Antoinette & Parker, big sister to Chad, wife to Jonathan, mother to Jaidyn, Jordyn, & Gavin, and best friend to my GIRLFRIENDS. But really who am I? I know what I enjoy – learning about Jesus, singing, designing, and planning. I know that I’m a people pleaser. So now what? Does this define who I am? When I stare in the mirror am I proud? Honestly, heck no! But rather than beat myself up in this post on all the things that make me unhappy about myself, I’ll flip it and talk about my desires. What I desire to be… a better Christian, a more lovable & enjoyable wife and mother (admittedly I’m the serious one). I desire a healthier, more attractive weight, my own successful business, and downright wealth. I desire to not be hindered by anyone or anything when it comes to the things that family and I want to go and do. I certainly desire that money will no longer be a factor. But does any of this define me? I guess today is just one of those days where I’m like Lord I need you! I’m just not feeling myself these days- help me! And truthfully I believe He will. I desire the day that I will look back at this post and it becomes my testimony, on how God brought me out and granted me the desires of my heart.
Delight yourself in the Lord, And He will give you the desires and petitions of your heart. ~Psalm 37:4
What are the desires of your heart? Do you know who you are? Why wait another 8 weeks to start embarking on New Year’s resolutions when you can talk to God right here, right now about it? He’s always listening and He desires our attention.
I pray this hasn’t dampened anyone’s day but motivated you to start speaking from your heart to God. As I close this post, I’m already feeling better, feeling more alive, feeling determined.
*special note: If you desire to have the GIRLFRIENDS. pray with you on any situation and/or matter please submit your prayer request to the Let Us Pray tab at the top of the blog.
Have a blessed weekend ladies!
