TITLE: This place called "Desire"

The pressure of existing in the pain of normalcy, the torture of being blind to the right way!
Oh how we lack the knowledge of truth and correct view of this place called” desire “
I lived in a duel level of completeness, thinking the road didn’t have a name, and that the author had no claim to this very place of will. I waded through the definitions, places, and themes of life’s decisions, and arrived on the other side, no more complete than when I began. Actually quite distorted, having put trust into the vague, glimpse of what I had created in my mind to be the definition of what “love “was supposed to be. In one word the true description of where I lived was “Lost “

After being found and walking in many years of purity trusting fully in the One, who created “Desire, and Love” the pressure of normalcy faded and the pride of truth replaced it. The blindness to the right way was replaced by eyes willing and desiring to see the real vision in which we are made for.

Desire becomes a longing to know fully who I am in Christ, surrounded by the knowledge of whom God is fully within me.

Love becomes a person, an action, a completeness found only by knowing Jesus, in whom Love was made fully complete.

In this world many still live in the place that parallels Christ, My prayer is that all that are “lost” will be “ Found “ in Christ Jesus Amen!
