Vlog: He will give you

Do you have dreams and desires that haven't come to fruition yet? 

Here is quick video of a recent revelation. I was reading Psalms 37 and found a video by Christy Nockels. It was exactly what I needed today.

Good devotional. The Psalms are great for spurring spiritual and seeing our lives in light of God's grandeur. Good post. Think I'll go read Psalm 37.

This was a beautiful discussion. You're right - the really BEAUTIFUL thing about the mundane is that it frees our mind in a way that God often uses to reveal Himself to us. If we saw the mundane more like a gift and less like a punishment, if we opened our hearts more to those moments then who know how God would use them. Very inspiring!

I absolutely LOVED that you shared your beautiful testimony in the video! Hearing your voice and tone put an emphasis on your words...and they are so true! God wants such wonderful things for us...he wants us to have pure joy. And if we give our hearts and our lives to Him, we will have the life that he wishes for us :) Your faith is inspiring Jennifer. It's been a while since I've read in Psalms...looks like I know what I'm reading with Adam tonight before bed :)

Mia Helen said...

Jennifer, I love this! Thank you!

Becca said...

Totally feel like you were divinely inspired to do this post. Need it! Thank you!

i can relate in the same way, because i am a part-time secretary too & have been for 6 years... i finished school over a year ago but have yet to find a better job... sometimes i feel like my life is going in the opposite direction i want it to. but i have just started reading through the Psalms & God has already shown more of Himself to me through that! no matter what our hopes & dreams are, our biggest desire should always be to seek Him first!!! it is a lesson i am learning... :)

thank you for this! i've been stressing over all my thoughts and desires lately, and have been so unsettled with where i am right now in my life. but the Lord is good and faithful, and i need to let his desires be above mine and need to trust in Him in EVERYTHING. so blessed to have caught your post this evening!!

I soo needed this today!!

Breeann said...

I love this! This is a revelation I had myself a few months back...and it's changed my perspective on that verse in such a powerful way. Yes, I have my dreams and desires...but now I really want my dreams and desires to be the dreams and desires that God has for me...not what I have for me. It's a hard road to walk sometimes...but it's a road I definitely enjoy taking. Thanks for this reminder today!

I totally needed to hear this today - thanks so much for sharing

Well said :) It's too easy to fall into thinking God will give you whatever you want- he has the best wisdom of all! I need to seek God in the mundane things like my summer job and times when I wonder what the point is! Love Zoe xx

Natalie @ NS Pottery said...

Thanks for shedding new light on these verses for me. You are a gem :)

Kristina Clemens said...

Beautiful prose...lovely! I found myself praising God! =)

Thank you SO much for sharing this. You are such a blessing. This is something I've been meditating on lately as well.

Emily said...

This is great. I'm glad you pointed this out that it's not OUR desires He's giving us, but HIS!! So many don't want to know or hear that and think it's all what they want.

Seek Him for His desires.

ps, your hair looks really dark, did you color it?

kelly summers said...

great post!
this is a lesson i've heard before, but i love your perspective on it. it's so funny because i saw it right after i had a conversation with a friend about dreams. amazing timing :)

Laura said...

beautiful testimony of bending our will to His!

DaisyGirl said...

Thanks so much for this vlog. When I watched it on youtube, it led me to your "from here" video as well. BEAUTIFUL!!

Christina said...

Thanks Jen for this great reminder. It was just what I needed to hear as I am in a time of transition from graduate school to the working world and I have been praying for God to open the doors of opportunity for me to do His will for my life. What a great reminder to seek Him in all we do.

this was such a lovely post and perfect video. everything you said hits straight home for me and is so, so true. often, we (myself included) tend to get so caught up in our own wishes and desires and forget to follow the One Creator, whose dreams for us as so much bigger than we can imagine.

and "invite the simple into the mundane" just became my new mantra. thank you:)

Laura said...

That was really good, thanks for sharing. :) I love those verses as well. <3

I wish my voice sounded just as lovely to the ears as yours.
I want to commit my ways to the LORD fully and completely so that He will bring forth His fruit. Thank you so much for the post girl. Delighting in HIM is so much more than Loving Him. It is loving ALL of His plans for our life and where He has us right now and this life that we have been given. And I know that I can often look at the situations and circumstances of my life and critique or desire a change but truthfully the GOD of this universe has placed me exactly where I am and He is orchestrating HIS perfect will through my life and that is such a beautiful BLESSING and PRIVILEGE. So so beautiful and yes quite profound!!

Loved this! Just what I needed after a long day of child rearing ;) Such a beautiful reminder that he is in control and has even better plans for me then I could imagine!

Beka said...

I am so glad you found me! I love your blog! your layout. YOUR LOVE FOR THE LORD! I'm glad to say we are SISTERS. :)

Sister's from the SAME mister........ kinda. ;)

Keep shining for Jesus! :)

Cassandra said...

Awesome testimony. Thanks for sharing!

Bethany G said...

This was so great!! I love the 'find the glorious in the mundane' quote. Such a good thing to remember

Annie said...

jen, i loved this. i think it's so difficult to remember that it is God's plan that will prevail, instead of ours.

thank you for the reminder that we ought to invite the glorious into the mundane. several years ago, one of the girls at our church talked about how she had learned in one of her classes at moody bible institute that mark 16:15 is literally "as you are going, make disciples," not "go and make disciples." she talked about how everything we did and said ought to push people closer to Jesus, whether they knew Him or not. and i think inviting the glorious into the mundane, letting Him transform the simplest and most ordinary of actions into something extraordinary, is the way in which we live Him best.

Carly said...

Thank you so much for sharing. Such a beautiful testimony! I just found your site yesterday and am glad to have been able to learn so much about you so quickly. It's an inspiring thing to be able to find the beautiful, glorious, Godly moments in our mundane tasks.

Thanks again :)

Sydney said...

Oh wow this is awesome! It's so true! That's such a wonderful revelation of such a great verse! He won't give me my desires, but He'll give us HIS desires for our heart! Thank you Jenn!!
