Desire of your Heart
I believe in God, in Jesus Christ, the Son of God, Savio, King, my Lord and commander of my life. I believe Jesus died to pay for my sins and to provide the payment to God for me to have a good and complete relationship with the Trinity (God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit), and to live my eternal life in rest, peace, and glory with them in heaven after my journey on this earth is over.
Up until age 42 in this journey, my heart’s desire was on getting things, too many immoral thoughts and actions, and ugly words, too much hate and anger, and NO PEACE.
The strange thing is that in the middle of this mess, God had continued blessing me, a college education, a Christ filled wife who forgave me so much ( and still does), a good career, then a booming business. All while I was so far from him, rebellious, full of darkness. Even in all of that, God gave me my heart’s desire.
My hearts desire led me to greater depths of darkness, until in my 42nd year, i hit a bottom and found a real relationship with Jesus Christ.
What is the desire of your heart today? Has it changed? Should it be different? Who do you think Jesus is? Do you act in accordance with this belief? How should you act?
