“You have made known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand.”
Psalm 16:11
“I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.”
Ephesians 3:16-19
One of the problems I had in the past was putting my hope in illusive dreams. My expectations were that something I envisioned in my mind would somehow be better than my current state of being and bring me gratification.
Now I am able to enjoy every present moment as it is without hoping that some event or thing I acquire in the future will provide me with something more desirable. Communion with the Lord makes every moment meaningful, regardless of the situation or circumstances in which I find myself.
All of my hopes and dreams are in Him and I trust Him to make everything that happens work together for good.
I pray that God will keep me content in Him so that I don’t have to seek anything in the future to give me more pleasure than I already possess.
