Dear Princess of God, is it springtime in your soul? If not, God wants you to flower also!
God wants you to grow, and thrive, and bear fruit, even to yield an hundredfold increase of what He plants in you as seeds of inspiration and holy desires. God wants to see you doing so well that you bless those around you and spill over to share the blessings He has given you with the less fortunate, blessings not of material things but of the sunshine of your heart and soul, the song you sing when you are happy and joyful and full of life (:
5You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. 6Surely goodness and mercy will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever. Psalms 23:5-6
So how do you foster this joy, beatitude and flowering of the heart, mind and soul? First, you must spend time with the source of all Beatitude. Spend time with Him in the mornings before you start your day, give Him your early hours before work, cares, family, and everything else in your life consumes your attention. Give Him that first part of your day, and He will change you days.
11You turned my mourning into dancing; You peeled off my sackcloth and clothed me with joy, 12that my heart may sing Your praises and not be silent. O LORD my God, I will give thanks forever. Psalm 30:11-12
Next, make a list of all the things in your life that bring you joy. Resolve today to dedicate time to those things each day, and do less of what is not bringing you joy, trusting that the Lord will provide.
God wants joyful worshippers and Princesses of God. (:
