What Would Happen?

Outdoor Sanctuary – Green Lake Conference Center

What would happen if we prayed for God to make us hungrier for Him, rather than praying for Him to fill our desires?

What would happen if we begged God to show us ourselves as we truly are, rather than relying on a mirror and a scale to see if we measure up? 

What would happen if we confessed our sins and became broken, rather than making excuses and blaming others for our behavior? 

What would happen if we insisted on God to fill the ravines of our longing souls with His love, rather than exhausting people with our expectations?

What would happen if we drank Him in, as if He was Living Water, rather quenching our thirst in dirty puddles. 

What would happen if we saw Him as the Treasure of our lives, rather than satisfying our need with possessions we can’t take with us to heaven? 

What would happen if we believed that hell was real, rather than thinking everyone has their own opinion? 

What would happen if we longed for others to see Jesus, rather than having them hear our opinion?

What would happen if our prayers fueled a Holy Spirit fire, rather than being empty and repetitious words?

… Revival?

About Heidi Viars

“If you look for truth, you may find comfort in the end; if you look for comfort you will not get either comfort or truth ...” ― C.S. Lewis ..... In my pursuit of self, I found utter darkness. In my pursuit of truth, I found Jesus, who dispelled the darkness by His forgiveness. Now I follow Him and try to understand Him better. I am a wife, mother of 6, blogger and love taking photographs of sunrises.
