True Statement:

God is Good.

"Give thanks to the LORD, call on His name; 
make known among the nations what He has done, 
and proclaim that His name is exalted."
Isaiah 12:4

Countless times I've began or ended my journal entries with this;

"God, please give me a desire for You."

A true prayer. A prayer coming from my heart. Written over and over again through my old journals. But also written over and over again were stories of things that God had done. More of His character revealed through verses and circumstances in my life. Thoughts and prayers that came from my heart. Prayers that He Himself had answered. And it struck me;

I have been asking God to do something that He had already done.

He had given me a desire for Him. Lately the desire has grown more intense. I want to be more like Him. The desire is here. So... What now?

Start doing.

Keep writing.

Begin living.

Stop wandering around waiting for some burst of super-natural revelation. Find direction and love in the little bits He uncovers each day." Yep. that's it. This is my Tuesday inspiration.  

Live so that others around me catch a desire for God.

Live in a way that properly represents the God I serve and love.

"Sing to the LORD
for He has done glorious things; 
let this be known to all the world."
Isaiah 12:5

So true! For me personally, so many times I get caught up hoping for big things to happen, but God has already done so much-- His goodness shines in every moment of my life. God wants our trust and faith even in the little things of life.

Thank you for sharing, Anna!
