Proverbs 23:26

“O my son, give me your heart. May your eyes take delight in following my ways.”

Sometimes we over-complicate things. Okay, most of the time we over-complicate things. We as women tend to overthink everything, and our imaginations can sometimes get the best of us. I have always struggled with trying to figure out “what does God want from me and for me?” To be honest, I was always searching for this deep, profound, lightning bolt moment type of answer. Boy, was I off base.

I always thought that God wanted me at my very best, slaying giants and conquering mountains. In reality, I was setting myself up for failure because I have experienced the valley much more than the mountain top. When I take a step back and read this scripture, I am told that He simply desires my heart.

There is absolutely nothing complicated about that. He wants my dreams, and my plans. He wants me to be surrendered to His will for my life, and always to be obedient to His voice and His word. He desires to lead and order every step I take in this life.

Do I want to do something great for His kingdom? Absolutely. But over these last few years, God has been revealing to me that greatness doesn’t always look like greatness. Faithfulness, obedience and humility go a long way in accomplishing what God desires.

Prayer: God, I am thankful for the simple things today. You want the broken pieces and all my strengths. You want me at my best, and love me just as much when I’m at my worst. You desire me, You love me and You want the best for me and for that I am truly grateful.
