Here are the questions Tracy left on the blog post today:
1. God’s Word says that “when we delight ourselves in Him, He gives us the desires of our heart.” Have you taken any time to ponder WHAT the desires of your heart are? What are your dreams? Aspirations? Hope against all hope? What are your passions? There is a wonderful song by Michael W. Smith called “Secret Ambition.” When I first heard this song, God awakened a desire in me to bring a woman’s conference to our church for the first time. He then drew me into a speaking ministry as He called ME to be the speaker at the conference. I had no idea that this passion was inside me until God awakened it. Ask God to awaken you to the secret desires of your heart…..the plans He has for you….the dreams He has given you.
2. Make a list of ways you would like to be transformed during this bible study. How do you want God to change you? What are your personal goals with this study? What are your personal expectations? Why are you reading this? What do you hope to accomplish? What are things in your heart that you want God to remove? What are things you want Him to place in your heart? How do you see yourself changed at the end of the six weeks? What drew you to the study in the first place? What does this “Heart Makeover” mean to YOU?
1. I think we all have a lot of desires of the heart. I know I do. Some of mine are to be the woman,wife,and Mother God wants me to be. I want my marriage to continue to grow in the Lord and my husband and I learn more about one another to better serve one another. I want my boys to come to know the Lord at an early age and begin to live wholly for him at an early age. I want to know God more and learn more about His Word. I would love to have an online ministry one day and minister to young girls and women. I would also love for my family to go to Honduras to minister. I have a heart for out of State missions and want my boys to know what others go through daily and how blessed they are. I want to let others know you may not have what others have,but there is hope,Jesus Christ, He is hope to the nations! That is just some of my desires. I have many more,but will stop there for now.
2. Ahh such a personal question. I want the Holy Spirit to show me the things I cannot see about myself and show me what He wants for me instead. I want to learn to be more patient with myself,family,and just people. I want my heart to be transformed to have God's heart. I want to be more like Jesus and to do that my heart has to be right with God. Yes, I am born again Christian who has an on going relationship with the Lord,but I know there are many things that need to go in my heart. Isn't it so hard? Like Paul said I do the things which I do not want too and I don't do the things that I want too. I hope to see with God all things are possible and begin letting my faith grow more. So much more,but I'll stop there too!
Don't forget to join us for Makeover of the Heart. Have a blessed day!
