When you stop long enough to ponder your life, the choices you are making everyday, what are you honestly chasing? The danger of desire; your desires.
What are you going after? The desire to be accepted, to be loved, to be admired. On a daily basis, we find ourselves making decisions based on our desires. But at the time, we don’t see it that way. It’s more of an innocent action taken to acquire our goals, our possessions, and our blessings we have here on earth.

Your desires help formulate the decisions you make. So today, the question to reflect upon is: How is the danger of desire affecting your life?
If you were honest and real with yourself, what would be the ONE desire you long for?
During your reflection time, the tears may begin to flow. Let them. You are in a vulnerable state of mind. God is chipping away at your heart drawing you closer to Him.
So what is that desire you long for? Maybe it’s acceptance. Knowing you are known.
What about eating to make you happy. You word might be satisfaction.
You could be a woman wanting to have everything perfect, in its place. Organized to the nth degree. Having your children just right. Your word might be admiration.
As you sit there every night in bed, the home quiet and children tucked into bed, if only you were noticed in your cute pjs. And what about your new hair do. You word might be attention.
The danger of desire is your daily necessity to control that desire. But God has already fulfilled your desire.
Psalm 20:4 “May He give you the desire of your heart and make all your plans succeed.”
