So many times thoughts of good deeds come to mind. For example, one thinks that i want to pray Quraan, do zikr, pray tahajjud, give sadaqah e.t.c. This thought is called ‘Waarid’ in the terminology of the soofiyaa. Remember! this thought of a good deed which has come in to your mind is a guest of Allah. If you value it (by acting upon and executing the good deed) the guest will come back and invite you towards another good deed. If however, it is not valued and treated well then it will not return as it is a guest with great self respect. Seek the protection of Allah from the time this guest stops coming to you as this will result in the heart becoming hard, dark and rusty.
