It’s Time to Make a Desires of Your Heart List

What are the desires of your heart? Is that something you’ve allowed yourself to think about before?

In this season, it’s so important—now more than ever—to tune into what God is speaking to you concerning your destiny, desires, and dreams. He’s looking to promote and advance you!

Many people today are seeking out their life purpose, and God is revealing this to you in this season. Your life purpose is the very reason you were created. A need for purpose is rooted in our human nature.

The desire of your heart usually reveals clues to what your life purpose is. But many of us were taught to stifle our desires.

Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart.
Psalm 37:4 NIV

God really does want to give you the desires of your heart! Just make sure you’re delighting in Him first. Simple, right? It really is.

Get your hopes up.

So many people have been in a spiritual wilderness. Some call it the dark night of the soul or spirit. Whatever you call it, it is time to break out and advance!

Start with believing that God wants to give you the good stuff. Take a deep breath and invite God to renew your hope. Many people have been feeling like they don’t want to get their hopes up too high because so many bad things have happened.

This is a time to get your hopes up! God is moving. He’s ready to give you the desire of your heart. There are a few things you can do to accelerate this process.

1. Make a Desires of Your Heart list.

Take a moment to ask yourself some questions. Write down your answers!

• Have you given up on achieving or accomplishing any goals or desires in your life?
• Are there things you would like to do, but you are not sure how to get started or what steps to take next?

If you have not done so already, make a Desires of Your Heart list.

Write down some of your heart’s desires. Allow yourself to just write. And do not worry about what should or should not be on the list. Be honest with yourself.

2. Take one simple step.

You can turn your frustration and dissatisfaction into action.

We often avoid change because it is painful. Dissatisfaction with our lives can sometimes be a complicated thing to address. We often avoid what we know we need to do by distracting ourselves with something else.

Look at your Desires of My Heart list and choose just one item.

Now, what is one simple step you can take, right now, towards making that one item a reality? Or what can you do today to find out more about it?

Maybe you can find a book on the subject, do some research, sign up for a class, download an application or reach out to mend a relationship.

List what you want to accomplish and what it will take for you to do it. It is amazing what will happen over time as you keep taking small steps. You will find that new creativity will flow! And after a few months, you will have accomplished a lot.

Taking time to gain clarity on what the desires of your heart are—and moving one small step at a time towards your life purpose—will help you begin to build your life. You will be amazed at what God can do through you.

Hold on! Things are accelerating.

    Hello, I felt the same way years ago. What helped me is when I starting giving GOD my 10% tithing and benevolent offering. To others it was easy, but to me, it was hard because I was getting so little money as it was.

    When I started trusting GOD with my finances and the biblical responsibilities I was supposed to be doing, then HE (GOD) began to bless me tremendously which made it easier for me to fulfill my duties as a good Samaritan to the point that I was able to even bless others financially.

    Try GOD, Trust GOD, and most importantly–Watch GOD move on your behalf. I pray this helps you and I will keep you in my prayers each day and night I pray.

      Have you talked to the Lord about this? I wonder if He has anything to show you, possibly creative ways to generate income? Sit with Him and ask. This is not the prosperity gospel but instead is having the resources to do what God is calling you to do.
