When the “hunger” begins to fade…

Have you ever been so excited and motivated about something that God is doing in your life…

“super-charged”

something that He’s been stirring up in your heart— a “hunger”…

…only for it to suddenly “fade”…

And you’ve found yourself in a different place.

And you wonder,

“Father, what happened?”

“Where did the hunger,

the excitement,

the motivation,

the determination,

the drive…

to discover

to dig into

to soak up

to learn

…where did that go?”

And ‘why‘ did it go?

And where are You taking me now?”

And you find yourself seeking God about it,

you find yourself having heart-to-hearts with Him,

you find yourself examining your life,

your heart,

your intentions…

And then for a little while…

you find yourself in a time of “waiting”…

and “wondering” some more.

Don’t let discouragement set in!

Don’t lose heart in these times!

He’s drawing you in, and He’s doing a deeper work!

Allow Him to order your steps!

Perhaps…

He’s digging into your heart.

Perhaps…

He’s examining your “roots.”

Perhaps…

He’s “pruning some branches,”

that are not producing “good fruit”…

He’s preparing and He’s positioning you.

He’s shaping you.

Seek Him.

Trust Him.

Dwell with Him.

Draw nearer to Him.

Ask Him.

Be open and honest with Him.

Listen to Him.

Learn His lessons.

And wait upon Him.

Because He’s faithful.

And do you know…

the plans that He wants for your life

and the desires that He’s placed upon your heart

He desires

far more

than even you do. 💖

And He knows the way

So trust Him.

Seek Him.

Rest in Him, while you wait for Him.

He’s transforming your heart,

He’s working it out,

He’s growing your capacity,

and He’s so faithfully preparing

and positioning you

for the wonderful things

He has in store.

Jesus says, “Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit, He takes away; and every branch that continues to bear fruit, He [repeatedly] prunes, so that it will bear more fruit [even richer and finer fruit].”—John 15:2 (AMP)

Thank You, Father. 💝
