Quote from: Foadle on September 20, 2011, 11:17:58 amI have dreamed of a husband and family for 15 years, neither have come to pass
QuoteI have dreamed of being in a much greater relationship with God for 20 years or more yet all my efforts there seem futile
QuoteI have dreamed of touching people's lives so that they really do see God...and can't even get to that myself.
QuoteSo are my desires misplaced? Does God care? Have I missed it?
Quote from: Foadle on September 18, 2011, 05:54:08 pmThanks BTW what does GLY mean?Another question: How long then do you have to wait for those desires? Already I have waited over 10 years? Does that mean my desire is wrong and not of God? If not then why is it not fulfilled
Quote from: DiscipleWhomJesusLoves on September 25, 2011, 10:46:26 pmJust my thots:I don't think that "the desires of YOUR heart" must be God-placed in order for them to come to pass. IOW, you only get what GOD HIMSELF wants. I just don't think God is like that. (I wouldn't want my son to only get the toys I want! I would want to give him what HE wants, as long as they are good/safe gifts. I would also want to give him the toys I enjoy, because I want him to share/experience the fun with me.) If God only gives you want HE wants, then it's not really YOUR desires anymore but His alone. No, I believe that He gives you YOUR desires too, desires that are really YOURS.
Quote from: DiscipleHeLovesToo on September 26, 2011, 08:33:27 pm i don't see how there can be 'godly' desires that are not from God; but you may have some light i don't - can you support this with scripture? GLYB!!!
