Somehow in my 35 years of life I’ve come to believe that it is more noble or even more spiritual to lessen my desire.
I’ve been meditating on the Psalms that talk about a person who trusts in God is like a tree that flourishes in the House of the Lord. What does it mean in the everyday, sometimes mundane stuff of life to do what Jesus did and greater things? After over a decade of fulltime pastoral ministry shaped by these questions, we're focusing a season on researching and going deeper into them.

One universal human weakness is our desires.  God has used this week to drive this truth home with me. I desired to get my writing done early this week, but Monday and Tuesday became errand days.  Between the To Do list and high maintenance kids, I didn’t write a word.
I desired to finally get my day of rest yesterday (or today) but I have an energetic two year old and a teething nine month old who decided Mommy needed to be on call all day.


Once Satan knows the things I cherish, he will do his best to use them against me.  He may try to stand in the way of a dream, or may seek to injure someone or something currently in my life. I love reading, writing, music, sappy movies with a happy ending, chai tea, and watching the rain fall outside my bedroom window. I am passionate about finding ways to make Christianity more applicable and more practical in our every day.

MenuFearless doesnt mean you're completely unafriad and it doesnt mean you're bulletproof, it means you have alot of fears.. Love deeply, forgive quickly, take chances, give everything with no regrets and forget the past with exception of what you have learned and remembered everything happens for a reason.
I really wanted to worship and I started getting afraid that my screaming child was going to sabotage my desires.
Not in order to squash them to fit into his mold but because he created us and cares about us and wants to partner with us in bringing his Kingdom. Those who are strong don't make it their mission to hurt others, or to seek out to find who may hurt them. If your apology isn't sincere and you're just apologizing to avoid an argument then that can just lead to more damage.


Then there are the verses where Jesus compares the Father in Heaven to an earthly father who wants to give good gifts to his children…if a child asks for a fish will you give him a stone?
But what if the solution isn’t trying to ignore our desires but rather to acknowledge, understand, bring them before the Lord and just like with our kids, teach them how to articulate, and be okay with deferred desires and even giving up desires out of love, not out of duty. Also you can't just apologize for everything, you have to know what you're apologizing for.
We should be mindful of the fact that God really does know our hearts,  which why he is constantly breaking and molding us. You can fool your fellow man, but you will never out smart the one who gave you the heart beat.
Greg is explaining to Sam that sometimes we do something we don’t want to do because we love the other person.
