The only way for me to truly see the goodness of the Lord is for me to keep my eyes on Him. In order to see His blessings, I need to look for them. God will give us the desires of our hearts, but first, we must desire Him.
When I seek the Lord with my whole heart and desire Him, more than the things of the world, then He blesses me abundantly. I can’t serve the Lord, however, with my mind in the world. He wants me to choose each day who I am going to serve.
Serving God means turning loose of everything in the world. The world has restrictions and guidelines for how we are supposed to act. Society paints us a picture of perfection and wants us to follow it. The image that it wants us to chase does not exist. That is why it is so easy to become stressed and depressed. No one could ever live up to these standards. There is no joy in this kind of life.
The joy in life comes from knowing God. The more I read His beautiful word, the more that I come to love Him. God never intended for us to live the way the world wants us to live.
Every day, I want to set my eyes on Him. I want to replace the lies of the world with the truth of God. I want to walk and talk to Him and be encouraged by His word. I want to surrender my life to Him, and trust Him to do what is best for me. I want Him to mold me into the person that He wants me to be. The more time that I spend with Him, the more time that I want to spend with Him. It is such a blessing to be able to read His word and to talk to Him.
God is the creator of my life and the keeper of my soul. Every day He speaks His love into my heart. He helps me to see His goodness and to desire His blessings. In God, I have everything that I need. And I am so thankful to know Him.
