Words to SPARK your Heart-Song from our co-founder Sherry Douglas.

Hi everyone. I’m Sherry Douglas with Heart-Song. It seems that typically, we desire MORE. MORE clothes or shoes, MORE toys, MORE money, MORE house, MORE yard, or MORE recognition. With some thought and honesty with yourself, you can figure out what your MORE is. These things mentioned aren’t bad – in and of themselves. What can hurt us, though, is if we look to these MORES to fill our hearts with joy and contentment. We may experience a rush for a while when we’ve obtained our MORE, but within a short time we find ourselves searching for the next MORE because the last one wasn’t truly meaningful or fulfilling.
What if we try a different approach? As we discussed last week, author Holley Gerth says a God-sized dream is desiring MORE of what God has for you. What if instead of looking to possessions or accomplishments to bring meaning to our lives, we ask God what he desires for us? I’ve never had the privilege of hearing God speak aloud, but he has provided the entire Bible to learn MORE. He’s not stingy with his desires – he’s bold and creative. He desires us to consistently be open to change – to change into people MORE kind, MORE loving, MORE generous, MORE faithful. He desires us to be MORE like him.
Whether you’re a person of faith or not, I encourage you to open God’s book and take a look. Look for the MORE he desires for you. Ephesians 3:20 of the Passion Translation says, “Never doubt God’s mighty power to work in you and accomplish all this. He will achieve infinitely more than your greatest request, your most unbelievable dream, and exceed your wildest imagination! He will outdo them all, for his miraculous power constantly energizes you.” We can trust his mighty power to work in us and give us MORE, MORE than we can ever imagine. MORE that gives us energy and makes a difference. This is the Word of the Lord. If you have been inspired to look for MORE of what God has for you, will you please share this video to reach those you know who also hope for MORE? Thanks for being here. See you next week.
