Desire is a longing or craving, as for something that brings satisfaction or enjoyment. What are your desires? This is such a strong word. It seems to delve deep into the soul for me. My desire is for the fullness of the Lord. This is the time of Lent. During this time, I will be seeking to get to know God more than ever. I have spent the last year praying for my needs to be met. I have come to realize that I already have what I need the most, Christ Jesus as my Lord and Savior. My desires have changed quite a bit. Believing the Word of God, my physical needs have been met. He is Jehovah Jireh, my provider. That said, the focus of my needs is on Jesus. His Word says to delight in Him and He will give you the desires of your heart. The things you desire change as the relationship with the Lord deepens. I believe this is a critical factor because God desires that we worship Him and not anything else.
What do you desire? From where does the root of your desires stem? Is it the flesh, the world or Jesus Christ?

Amen. We usually love the gift rather than the gift giver, so our flesh desires the world more, than Christ. Thank God that he gives us a new heart shaped to love and desire him, though imperfectly.
Awesome response. Miss you, Barbara. God is faithful though. Started a full-time job. I will still be writing though. I will be posting tomorrow.
Praise God! I am so happy for you, San! Weeping doesn’t last always, but joy does come. You have so pressed and been faithful through the hard trials that you met, so you too are an encouragement to me for one who does not give up on God! May God continue to grant you all you need. Much love!
