What exactly does that word mean?
According to the Webster dictionary, desire is a strong feeling of wanting to have something or wishing for something to happen.
About a year ago, a friend introduced me to a book and challenged me to read it.
The words inside, powerful words, reached into the inner spaces of my heart. It was too hard at the time, and I had to put the book down.
As I pray through my struggles with anxiety now, I am seeing the word desire through different eyes.
Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He shall give you the desires of your heart. Psalm 37:4
Desires of my heart. What do I desire?
I desire to be free from the gripping fears anxiety stirs up. I desire to trust God and His perfect plan for my life. I desire to know Him closer. I desire for my relationships with others to be more meaningful.
This advent season, draw close to the manger. Embrace the birth of the Savior, the hope and promises for your future. Desire to know Him deeper, closer.
I think I am ready to pick up the book Desire again…to embark on “the journey we must take to find the life God offers.” What God offers is so much more than the world can offer.
