MOVING FORWARD >>> Dear God . . .

“And the Lord answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that reads it.” Habakkuk 2:2

In the first part of Moving Forward, we discussed needing to get clear on what it is we were moving towards; get clear on what is it we want; what is our heart’s desire? So, to get clarity in what we wanted as well as what we did not want in our lives, we were going to write a heartfelt letter to God stating our hopes, dreams, and desires for our lives. Since we also spoke about being transparent, I decided to share my letter to God with you. Here it is.

Father, I thank you for being so kind and gracious toward me. Thank you for loving me unconditionally. Thank you for being faithful to me even when I’m not faithful. Thank you for always holding me up. Thank you for victory through Jesus in every area of my life. Thank you for being my God, my Lord, my Savior, my Redeemer, my friend, and my Father.

Lord, I am writing this, not as a petition, but to pour out my heart to you and express my sincerest desires for my life. However, none of this means anything, if it is not your purpose and plan for my life. Your will for my life usurps every desire I have.

My greatest heart desire is to show forth your love and goodness through whatever avenue you open unto me. I also have a strong desire to demonstrate your power to heal, deliver and set people free from sickness, disease and bondage. It is my desire that signs and wonders follow the Word that I speak or write.

I desire to bless your people. It is my desire to provide your people with resources that will encourage and strengthen them both spiritually and naturally.

Father, I desire to see my family loving you. I desire to see your purpose and plan come forth in the lives of my family, my extended family, my dear friends, and my Blog and Twitter friends. And, as for that special someone, you know my heart’s desire.

“Therefore I say unto you, Whatever things you desire, when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you shall have them.” Mark 11:24.

    Encourager Dear, what strikes me about your love letter is that it seems that being aware of God’s Love for us brings out the same heart desires in all of us. Could we actually be designed that way? Delight yourself in the LORD, and He shall give you the desires of your heart. Thank you for meat to chew Encourager Dear. (o:

    I truly believe that we must know what it is that we want and to always ask for His will for our lives, and have great faith in GOD so He can do great work in us so the desires we have can be reality.

    • Good to see you again Grace Ann. Help me to understand why you would require more from yourself than Jesus does. Jesus didn’t say it takes “great” faith to receive your desires. He simply said “believe.”

    Dear God…….and thank you for my DearEncourager. I pray that you will continue to open up all and any lines of communication for her and I pray that you will bless her heart’s desire. In Jesus name amen! Oh and God, thank you for the plans you have for my life. You know my heart’s desire as well. Please let me be a vessel to all people. And God, please bless me with the new career that I have asked you for. I’m ready to travel! Again, I ask this in Jesus name, amen.

    • Thank you cousin for that heartfelt prayer. I sincerely appreciate it. And, thank you for sharing a portion of your letter to God. I pray that the Lord continue to open doors to you and that He also grants you your heart’s desires. Favor!

    Hi Kathy! Thanks for the transparency! “This is the confidence which we have before Him, that, if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us in whatever we ask, we know that we have the requests which we have asked from Him,” 1 John 5:14-15
