The Desires of my Heart


I said to God, “Please show me the desires of my heart,”
He replied, “If you will look upward you’ll start
To envision the things outside of your mind…
The things in your dreams you’re hoping to find.”

I said, “I’d always thought I’d live on a beach!”
“My Child,” He said, “That’s never been out of My Reach…
But what I need is for you to be able to grasp
That there is nothing that you could ever ask
Of me that I wouldn’t gladly give
If you required it to live
A life that’s pure and full of hope
Now what can I do to help you cope?”

“Well, maybe a little more of that,
And maybe little less of fat ...and
A little more money can go pretty far,
And it’s almost time for a new car…
But Lord aren’t I sounding greedy,
And shouldn’t I be giving more to the needy?”

He said, “If that is what you feel that you need to do,
You see child, these desires are all up to you.
Whatever you can live without,
Then you will question and you will doubt
But whatever you seek with My Purpose in your eyes
You’ll find no need to rationalize.”

I said, “Okay Lord, so now I get
That all You need is for me to submit
To the desire that is already in my heart
Because that was my purpose from the start.”

Delight thyself also in the Lord, and He shall give thee the desires of thine heart. Psalm 36:4

Your desire shall be for your husband… Gen. 3:16


  1. When we delight ourselves in Him He will give us those desires but one thing I found out about desires is often times we think we desire something and if we wait long enough we really don't want it anyway.

    1. Desiray ...I 100% agree with you!! Thank you for sharing.

  2. Hello Diana, I got the emails for Jackie, Thank you.

    I like this one, reminds me of being a kid, I want this, I want that, but what we want(desire) is not always what we need, and the Lord does provide what we need.
