“I hold you close to My heart. I will show you where to go and what to do. You can be assured that I am always aware of your every need. I also care about your every desire. Remember that it is My promise to change whatever desires are really not for you. Sometimes it may look like I am not hearing your prayers. I am, however, always listening. At times, much needs to take place in and around you before answers come. Whatever takes place, it is always for your good and for My plan to come to pass in your life. While you are waiting, be like Jesus to someone. Plant seeds of love. Water relationships. Tell everyone of My love. Seek to be in line with My purposes. Come to Me often. Let’s talk!”
Hebrews 13:5b AMP

Father, bring my heart in line with Yours. Thy will be done,
