Far too often I seek God's blessings instead of seeking God. I seek His hand instead of His heart. Far to often I run to him like His purpose is to satisfy my every want. Instead of leaning in to hear the whispered will of the Lord, I selfishly shout my will. My desires. My demands. I'd rather have relief from life-pressures than gain the strength to endure them and the lessons I'm intended to learn from them. When I'm desperate to fill my over-sized heart-cart with things that I think I need, I rob myself of what really matters: the pursuit of God and the blessings found in Him alone!!!!
So remember to BE STILL and LISTEN!!!! :-)
