God, You know my heart better than anyone. You know the dreams I have for the future, and the silent prayers I’ve prayed for years. You know what I am longing for, searching for, and waiting for.
You know my dreams, but You have a plan. You make all things beautiful in their time. You are faithful to keep Your promises, though so often I forget this and grow discouraged when my situations don’t seem to change as I think they should. It becomes easy to forget that You are not done working.
As I prepare for a new season, remind me of the promises You have for me, the gifts You’ve given me, and the hope that I have in You. Search me, and know my heart. Try me and test my anxious thoughts. See if there is anything within me that grieves You.
You establish my steps. I am choosing You, rather than what I think I need. I’m choosing to trust You. I am choosing to be faith-filled, knowing that You are faith-full.
Change the way I think and behave. Transform my mind so that I can continue in Your perfect will. Help me to become the person You created me to be so I can fulfill the calling You’ve placed on my life.
