Listen to Your Heart


Psalm 37:4

Find your delight in the Lord who will give you your heart’s desire.

I am overwhelmed by the truth of this passage. How long I tried to find delight in my ego’s desires…and kept plunging further into emptiness and misery. It wasn’t until I (under the control of my ego) was thoroughly frustrated that…by the grace of God…I heard the Spirit ask me (my true self) to pick up the guitar I hadn’t touched in ten years. How could that possibly turn things around for me?! Well…God’s ways are not our ways. How things have changed! Over the last 15 years I have: produced 3 original music albums; formed a music ministry; became a youth minister; then became chaplain and jail minister…all the while using the music God inspired in me in my various ministries. I had no clue that I would be doing any of this! What is God calling you to do with your life? What do you enjoy doing…something that gives you deep joy? Whatever it is…how can you do it to serve others and help make the world a more compassionate place? Listen to your heart…and follow. Your heart’s desire awaits you!
