When you're little, it's fun to play Limbo. In fact, I played Limbo with my cousins this summer! :) At 28, it's not so much fun when your life feels in limbo, although there is an exciting element of not knowing what the future holds! What great things will Jesus Christ be doing in and through my life?

"The pain you feel in your heart over the desires God has put in you [them being yet unfulfilled] is your gift from Him, because it causes you to wrestle with Him for the fulfillment of those desires." --Corey Russell

The first thing a Christian should do about anything is pray.

"If we were really convinced that prayer often changes the way God acts, and that God does bring about remarkable changes in the world in response to prayer (as Scripture repeatedly teaches that He does), then we would pray much more than we do. If we pray little, it is probably because we do not really believe that prayer accomplishes much at all." --Wayne Grudem

John 15:16--I have been appointed and chosen to bear fruit
Romans 8:28--I am assured that all things work together for good
Ephesians 2:18--I have direct access to God through the Holy Spirit
Hebrews 4:16--I can find grace and mercy in time of need

What unfulfilled desires has God placed in your heart? How are you wrestling with those unfulfilled desires?

As I wrestle with unfulfilled desires and pains in my heart, I need to go to Him in prayer--convinced and believing that He will bring about remarkable changes. God is Good!
