The Heartbeat of His Love for Me

Have you ever grown weary from trying to figure it all out?

The Heartbeat of Your Love Mixed Media

I’m so directionally driven. In fact, I often wake up with these words on my lips, “Lord, what is your direction for my life?” And then I knit my brow in consternation because I still haven’t a clue as to what God would have me do.

But this morning another thought rushed in behind my usual malaise, “Why is it always about going somewhere instead of being with someone?

This new perspective temporarily twisted my tongue, and got me thinking.

What if life was about enjoying our relationship with God versus trying to further our personal purposes?

What if I awoke every day and prayed, “Lord, help me to enjoy you today.”

Last night before falling asleep, I read these words by Teresa of Avila, which Ann Voskamp included in her inspiring book, One Thousand Gifts:

 Just these words He spoke

changed my life,

“Enjoy Me.”

What a burden I thought I was to carry–

a crucifix, as did He.

Love once said to me, “I know a song,

would you like to hear it?”

And laughter came from every brick in the street

and from every pore 

in the sky,

After a night of prayer, He

changed my life when

                      He sang,

“Enjoy Me.”

This morning I decided, This is the way I want to live!
