The Desires of Our Heart

There have been times when I’ve really had to ask God why.   Why did I not listen to His warnings?  Why did I marry an abusive man?  Why didn’t I have children?  Why have I been single for so long?  Why is the struggle to get healthy so difficult?  Why isn’t my book published yet? Why is an endeavor or dream taking so long? Why? Why? Why? 

                The questions can go on and on and on.  Some of my prayers and questions have gone on for a decade or two.  Will the Lord ever answer my questions or my hearts desire?

                There are times when I feel as if I’ve really come to terms with these questions and situations. Then a reminder will trigger the desire deep within my heart and soul.

                All I can do is pour my heart out to the Lord.  Tell Him my dreams and desires and ask Him to either take them away or fulfill them in His time.

                David wrote, “Take delight in the Lord and He will give thee the desires of thine heart.”  {Psalm 37:4}

                I don’t know why some desires take longer than others, but I know each day He is strengthening me, teaching me and preparing me.  All I can do is continue to pour myself into Him and trust He will give me the desires of my heart.

                What desires do you pour out to the Lord?
