Someone told me recently that the things of God that I am undertaking are covered in the secret place and not everyone is going to understand my mission and purpose for being here and living the one and only life I have been blessed enough to live. I want to be someone who, upon entrance to the heavenly gates, hears the words, “Well done, my good and faithful servant.” Sometimes the things God calls us to are not to be understood by anyone but Him. Answers to prayer are a whisper from the heart of God, an echo from the Throne, a touch from our Creator. Oh, how I wish that my prayers that are answered lined up with those that I love, but it isn’t always so. All I can do is KNOW that God hears my voice and His answers may not always be what I desire in my flesh to hear, but I know without a shadow of doubt that even when I hurt and my heart is so heavy that He is with me and He will work all things out for His glory.
2 Chronicles 30:17 – The priests and the Levites stood to bless the people, and God heard them, for their prayer reached heaven, his holy dwelling place.
My heart today hurts, I am burdened in my spirit, there is a sorrow that crushes me, but as I pour forth my wounded heart I sense the presence of the Lord round about me and I know He hears my cries, accepts my pleas, and answers in His name as I sob out the sorrow I cannot speak. I am reminded that I have a purpose in life and that is to share the Good News of what Christ alone can do. I was so lost to the world, yet Jesus still prayed for ME. He prayed that I have unity with people just like me and become unified as powerful witnesses to the reality of God’s amazing LOVE! Hope helps me to see, through the eyes of my heart, things that are not yet. I pray that you seek with all your heart your destiny, which is to follow God into the hopes and dreams that are in line with His will, in eager anticipation!!

To further your reading, and to dive a bit deeper, consider this from:
Matthew 25:23 – “His master replied, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things.Come and share your master’s happiness!’
I have been counted faithful, so I shall be called. Are you faithful in the little things? Are you obedient even when your obedience feels so much like sacrifice? Are you going to be able share in your Master’s happiness?
