Desire

"Delight thyself also in the LORD: and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.
Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass."
Psalms 37:4 + 5

I sometimes struggle with smothering my desires,
somehow subconsciously thinking it's "bad" to desire [I dont why...]
but lately the Lord's been showing me that it's NOT a wrong thing to desire—
especially when desires are from Him!

The Lord gives us the wonderful ability to desire—
but it's up to us if we're going to commit our desires to Him.

'Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for Him:' Psalm 37:7a. Those verses include our desires--You are wise to realize they are ours to yeild to Him.
