Seeking Jesus Brings Fruit in Your Life

A dear young woman named Anna, who is taking the Summer Pursuit, shares:

The past few weeks the Lord has reminded me through answers to prayer that He is all knowing and never runs late. So often, I try to take things into my own hands if there isn’t an immediate answer to prayer. The Lord has been showing me that His timing is perfect and that He knows the desires of my heart and what is best for me.

Looking back, the times that I have set aside to seek the Lord intentionally have been the sweetest, most fulfilling times in my life. I am praying that this summer will be one of focusing on eternal things, rather than temporary things.

Psalm 119:36-37, “Turn my heart toward your statutes and not toward selfish gain. Turn my eyes away from worthless things; preserve my life according to your word.”
