A Daily Devotional

About finding heart…

Ephesians 1:18 I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, 19 and his incomparably great power for us who believe. (NIV)

Your enthusiasm can vanish. You can burn out. Your motivation can disappear. Whatever heart you have to do a certain thing or be a certain kind of person can disappear. We do not often have problems with our motivation when we have the motivation. Our difficulties with being motivated appear when we have no motivation. Adversity of many kinds can devastate us and take away our heart. We even use the term "lose heart" to describe those times when our motivation has disappeared. Many times, we lose heart because we have lost sight of the mental picture we had in our mind inspiring us in the beginning. Keeping our mental picture in focus and tangibly visible is essential. Our mental picture is essential in keeping us motivated. Our vision or mental picture has a way of getting erased or getting so blurred we do not see the picture any more. To find your heart, you need to have a clear and definitive mental picture of what inspired you. Christ's hope for you is your greatest inspirational power. When you lose heart, you need to find the original hope of God fueling you onward. To find your vision and find your hope again, remember to pray and meditate over what Christ wants for you and from you.
