learning to be

The world is ever changing, so why am I so annoyed when things change? Recently my pastor has been talking about having a revival in our hearts, and it was just something I needed to hear. Secretly I've been craving to see it happen in church and to have the leader sound it out was so encouraging. Even before Phil spoke about it, I felt that God was telling me it had to start from my own heart, my hunger, my desire and my desperation for Him. And throughout the R^se Conference at church (Wednesday to Friday last week) the message was confirmed time and time again. And I know God has been doing amazing things in other people's lives not just my own, there is something stirring in the spiritual realm, in the atmosphere. I've been listening to Tom Read's Desperation Song lyrics and it has helped me pray and meditate. I have come to realise (well more like remember) if I want to see change, change needs to start from me...

he ann.. i know what u mean.. ive been wanting it so long at church and youth.. i can see it coming.. i still sometimes feel im not worthy or close enuf to god yet to want it. but thats rubbish! just deisre it and do something about that desire u will get it.. so my challenge daily is to now read my bible, talk with god.. pray and learn to develop and recognise that hunger and desperation in myself and to just worship and love god with my heart and not worry about wat others are doing around me.. :) im getting there.. just need some older influences in my life.. and yeh im looking and finding :D
