Re: Realign

When conditions align themselves at sunset, the sun angle and the amount and location of clouds, the results can be amazing. But if we’re in the wrong place, if our perspective is off, we may miss the spectacular show.

In the same way, we may find ourselves offset from our Heavenly Father’s heart, his intent, his purposes. In order to see and be a part of the spectacular work he is doing, we need to realign our hearts with his.

(The following verses are my interpretation of verses from the Psalms (NLT))

I know my heart is on the right track to realign with His, when it hears the Father say, “Come and talk with me.” And my heart responds, “Lord, I am coming.” from Psalm 27:8

When my heart is discouraged, when my heart is sad, I realign it and put my hope in my Father! I will praise him again— my Savior and my God! from Psalm 42:11

I ask my Father to search me and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts, to show me where I need to realign with Him. from Psalm 139:23

To realign with Him and His word, I confess the sin in my heart, then I can be assured my Father listens to me. from Psalm 66:18

Part of realigning my heart with His, is hiding His word in my heart, that I might not sin against Him. from Psalm 119:11

I can ask my Father to create in me a clean heart and realign my spirit with His. from Psalm 51:10

Then the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart aligns with the Father and pleases Him. Psalm 19:14

His light shines on me, and joy fills my heart when I’ve realigned it with His. from Psalm 97:11

Prayer: Heavenly Father, thank you that your word instructs me in how to realign my heart with yours. You are my great treasure and your word is my delight. (from Psalm 119:11) With all my heart I want your blessings and ask for your mercy (from Psalm 119:58), that my life might be a testimony of your realigning power. 




About Jill English Johnston

God writes His story on every heart, if we only pause to read it. My heart has lived in a fantasy world since early childhood and am delighted that God has finally brought me to the place where I can bring the fantasies to life through story. I am currently working on a fantasy trilogy (of course) but I also post thoughts, reflections and (hopefully) inspiration to my website: I am a follower of the Rabbi Jesus, married to my best friend and inspiration, and the mother of three incredible children, one daughter and two sons, a son-in-love, a daughter-in-love and two adorable granddaughters. When not writing, I passionately pursue prayer, reading (never enough time to read them all!), and the outdoors. My husband and I both served in the US Navy and have lived/travelled through many states and all over Asia. We both still enjoy travelling, but we really love our home in New Braunfels, located at the Texas Hill Country.
