Secret sacred wishes


I have a deep secret sacred wish that lies at the bottom of my heart. When I reach out and dream of it I find myself in a sacred space. It is a dream that calls me to be more than I am, to rise above who I am, above this time and this place. God does not see me as who I am or what I have done or where I have been, but who I am to become. I only have to listen to that Voice that calls to my heart and take the first step forward.

Emmet Fox says it beautifully in From Power Through Constructive Thinking, “The most secret, sacred wish that lies deep down at the bottom of your heart, the wonderful thing that you hardly dare to look at, or to thing about- the thing that you would rather die than have anyone else know of, because it seems to be so far beyond anything that you are, or have at the present time, that you fear that you would be cruelly ridiculed if the mere thought of it were known- that is just the very thing that God is wishing you to do or to be for Him. And the birth of that marvelous wish in your soul- the dawning of that secret dream- was the Voice of God. . . . telling you to arise and come up higher because He had need of you.”

May I have the faith of Abraham this day O Lord as I take this blind step forward. Lead me to Your promise. Bolster me for the journey as You reveal more and more of Your vision for me. You are the Source of my strength. Amen
