Whatever the area, you are feeling a void. You are lacking something you desire.

We pray, we try to create opportunities to make this thing manifest. We consult with our friends, asking them to pray and help us create opportunities.

Personally, as I’ve observed my own areas of lack, I’ve become aware of the greater significance these voids have in my life.

This awareness has given me greater clarity and understanding of my heart’s desire, but most of all the desire of God’s heart as well.

Of course there are still times when I scream, “God when will you provide _____________.” But overall I am allowing these areas of lack to draw more passion and purpose for the very thing I am longing for.
