Proverbs 20:5 tells us, “The intention of the human heart is deep water, but the intelligent draw it forth.”
I know that in my heart flows deep rivers of intention but I, to this point, have been unintelligent. I have let those intentions grow stale in my heart and fade to the backgrounds of my memory. If I learned anything from my best friend’s mom, it is that you don’t know how many days you have ahead, you cannot sit around thinking that you can put the intentions of your heart on hold until tomorrow. Tomorrow might not come. Therefore, I’ve made a small list of things I plan to do in this season of Lent that will help me be more intentional:
1. Send letters or cards to five different friends or family members – just because.
2. Call two people I haven’t spoken to this month, to catch up and really listen to what is happening in their life.
3. Send two small care packages with something bought and something homemade in each. These would go to people who don’t receive the letters/cards mentioned above. (I want to reach as many people as possible).
4. Designate a day to someone and be very intentional with my thoughts and prayers for that person. This will be done in the privacy of my own heart and I will NOT tell the person about my intention but God will hear the cry of my heart.
5. Make baked goods for two different neighbor families.
I challenge you to be more intentional with your thoughts and prayers. Join me in this commitment to manifest the intentions of your heart. What are some things that you can do in your everyday life to bring forth the deep waters of your heart?
