Our Hearts Desire

"Turn your eyes upon Jesus,Look full in HIS wonderful face,and the
things of earth will grow strangely dim, by the light of His glory and grace."~ Helen Limmel ~

People are searching for their heart's desire. Everyone is looking for something that will give them lasting satisfaction and contentment. They try to find it in their latest shopping trip, the new car, the big house, the money, adventure, children or a spouse, and even religion only to be disappointed and find that their longings are only temporarily quenched. God is the only one who can give us our hearts desire because He IS our hearts desire. Nothing in this world compares to Him. Once we become a child of God by accepting Jesus Christ's death and Resurrection as our gift of salvation, we also receive the joy of communing with Him through prayer and reading His Word. Only then we find the thing in life that is more precious than gold and silver, and sweeter than honey, and even the greatest riches in this world pale in comparison to HIM!

Psalm 37:4 Delight thyself also in the Lord; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.

Psalm 144:15b Happy is that people whose God is the Lord

Psalm 145:16, 19 Thou openest thine hand, and satisfiest the desire of every living thing. . . He will fulfil the desire of them that fear him: he also will hear their cry, and will save them.

Melissa, Ahhh, our heart's desire. The key is in realizing that when God becomes our desire that He fulfills them entirely, completely, without fail. Great thoughts. Thanks so much for sharing!
