I think many people struggle to even know what the deep desires of their hearts are. I am not talking about temporal spur-of-the-moment desires, but actually the deep longings that we have in the core of our being. What good works were we created to do? What gives life to the depths of our soul? I believe the more that we can believe that God loves us the way He made us, the more we will be convinced that He has placed within us desires that He wants to fulfill.

In Philippians 2:13, it says... for it is God who works in you to will and to act according to his good purpose. NIV God actually uses the desires of our heart to fulfill His good purpose for us. St. Augustine, one of the early church fathers said it this way... “Love God and do what you will.” I truly believe that the more we can love God and enjoy His fellowship, the more we will get in touch with our heart's desires. The more we get in touch with our heart's desires, the easier it will be to live a life flowing from our heart instead of our head.

I truly believe that as we trust that our hearts hear from our Father, the more we will simply delight to do His will because our hearts are in union with who He made us to be. May today be another day where we go deeper into the simple delights of being in relationship with the One who is absolute and complete love. And may today be a day where He brings into fulfillment the secret longings that He has placed in each one of our hearts.
