a heart to know Him

The LORD said to me, “What do you see, Jeremiah?” I said, “Figs! The good figs are very good, but the bad figs are extremely bad, so bad they are inedible.”
The word of the LORD came to me: “This is what the LORD, the God of Israel, says: Like these good figs, so I regard as good the exiles from Judah I sent away from this place to the land of the Chaldeans. I will keep My eyes on them for their good and will return them to this land. I will build them up and not demolish them; I will plant them and not uproot them. I will give them a heart to know Me, that I am Yahweh. They will be My people, and I will be their God because they will return to Me with all their heart.
Jeremiah 24:3-7

There's no one like my God.  When I couldn't come up with words to describe what I was feeling...couldn't explain it to know how to work my way through the brick wall I felt that was between God and myself, He came through for me.  He led me to read this passage in Jeremiah. It spoke volumes to my heart just when I needed it the most.  
Although effective and fervent was the farthest thing away from how I felt my prayers have been recently, God showed me through His Word that He's been keeping His eyes on me...for my good.  He has a plan for me where I am...He's going to build me up for His glory.  But, my favorite promise...He's going to give me a heart to know Him...and I daresay it will be better than it ever has been.
