The Whole Heart Challenge – Chapter 4

Today we are discussing chapter 4 of my book, Giving God Your Whole Heart. In this chapter we touch on seeking the Lord. In a way, this entire book is about seeking the Lord. It might sound obvious to some, but I think in reality seeking the Lord is something we forget to do. Life gets in the way, and we just try to get through each day. We have to be intentional about seeking God first in our lives. When I began to seek the Lord with all my heart, mind, and soul it changed my life. When we intentionally seek God, our eyes will be opened and we will see Him everywhere. We will realize just how much He cares and how He is in our everyday lives. In turn, this also draws us closer to Him. It is an awesome feeling to know the Lord is by your side all day and every day. Seeking God is not something I ever intend to give up. Seeking the Lord is a lifelong journey. And the amazing thing is that we will never run out of things to learn about God. And He will never stop molding us to be more like Jesus.

  1. As always I enjoyed this chapter. Seeking Him improves our listening – I so agree with that. The more time we spend with Him the more attuned we get to hearing what he has to say.
    I think I do not invite the Lord to speak to me often enough. And that is something reading this has reminded and encouraged me to do. Thank you for that Bridget 🤗
    I like the analogy of the camera focusing on the greenery instead of what we ideally want it to, just like our minds.
    Blessings to you my friend 😊💙.

    • In our fast paced world, it can be difficult to slow down long enough to seek God and listen to what He has to say. But it really does help us to grow closer to Him. I believe God tries to talk to us all the time. But we have so much going on, we don’t always hear Him. So when we are intentional about asking God what He wants to tell us, it opens our hearts to hear what He has to say. I am so glad you enjoyed this chapter. I confess that it is one of my favorites. And thanks so much for commenting. Your thoughts always give me new insight! God bless you too, my friend! 💜

  2. I love the part of this chapter about hearing from the Lord. I often hear from Him through songs. There will be times when a song comes on at just the right time and I know it’s from Him! It always warms my heart and lifts my mood.

    • Yes so true! I do feel God speaks to us in many different ways. Sometimes it’s through a song. Other times it might be through a book we are reading. Or He might just lay something on our heart. When we open ourselves up to seeking Him, it’s amazing how much more we do hear from Him, because it causes our hearts to be more receptive. Thank you for your comments! They always bring me joy. God bless! ❤️

  3. What a wonderfully timely lesson. As the world screams and shouts confusion and chaos and fear, this chapter encourages seeking God, peace, be still. Thank you.

    • Wow! I didn’t even think about it like that. But you’re right! And God knew all along that we would be going through this chapter at this time! He never ceases to amaze! 💕
