There are times I know things are going to happen a certain way. I feel a prompting or just know things about someone or a situation.
There are times I've been completely correct, and occasionally I'm wrong.
I like to think of this as two parts common sense and one part discernment.
This makes things very difficult at times to discern the Voice. Do I really hear Him speaking to me, or is it a selfish hope on my heart? Am I seeking His face or am I stacking facts and figures in my favor hoping to convince the One that created me that I'm correct in my calculations?
Right now there are a few things that are heavy on my heart. There are things that I want so desperately, but I'm not sure if they are in His plan and His timing. I'm caught in a struggle of wanting His will for my life and wanting what my heart wants, too.
I want my heart to be aligned with His.
I want my will to be aligned with His.
I want my plans to be aligned with His.
I want to rid myself completely of selfish desires and ambitions and goals.
I want to hear.
I want to listen.
I want to know.
I want to be faithful.
