Personal Journal: The Center

Original Entry Date 12/7/2015: I was having some worries and concerns this morning so I prayed to God asking and desiring to hear His voice.
He spoke to me and said, “I am the center….What is the center?”
I then pictured a whole peeled, orange laying on its side with its core removed.
I replied, “It is the core!” He asked, “What does the center do?”
Smiling, I said, “Hold it all together.” He then replied, “Make me the center and I will hold it all together.”
In other words, there I was worrying about things that I had no control over but here is God directing me to make Him the center of all things in my life: the center of all my relationships, my choices, my decisions at work, everything!

  1. Just read this prayer below — Look where the “eyes of your heart” are=>the center!!!! When the eyes of your heart are “opened” by the Lord they are flooded with “light to see spiritually” so you can “Walk by Faith not sight!”{2Corinthians 5:7}

    This is remarkable! Look at your orange! The core — it looks like the pupil of an eye — after re-reading this post and the prayer below!!!

    Ephesians 1:17-19 Amplified Bible
    17 [I always pray] that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may grant you a spirit of wisdom and of revelation [that gives you a deep and personal and intimate insight] into the true knowledge of Him [for we know the Father through the Son]. 18 And [I pray] that the eyes of your heart [the very center and core of your being] may be enlightened [flooded with light by the Holy Spirit], so that you will know and cherish the hope [the divine guarantee, the confident expectation] to which He has called you, the riches of His glorious inheritance in the saints (God’s people), 19 and [so that you will begin to know] what the immeasurable and unlimited and surpassing greatness of His [active, spiritual] power is in us who believe. These are in accordance with the working of His mighty strength.

    1. Wow that is so cool!
      I read something the other day that said “core” and it thought of this…
      I must’ve gotten sidetracked because I didn’t write it down, doh! Lol
