God's desire is for us to love one another,
I'm sure you remember the golden rule.
To treat each other as you would be treated,
We learned it as small children in school.

His desire is to see each of us,
Worshipping Him everyday,
Showing by the love we share,
And the things we do and say.

God's desire is to please us
With blessings that abound,
Can you see them in your life?
They are in abundance all around.

Do you think that He desires
That we desire to please Him?
Looking at what we've become,
Does He ever desire to start over again?

He gave His only son,
Who paid the ultimate price,
By taking on our sins,
By giving up His life.

And yet so many go about their lives
As if they couldn't care less,
Oh, if they only knew,
Just how their lives could be blessed.

We should show by example,
To ages young and old,
Let's spread the Lord's love and promises,
With actions and testimonies told.

God's desires have helped me,
And I'm sure He's helped you too.
So, let's join together to do what God desires,
It's the least that we could do.

Let's spread His Word,
Let's make His desires ours,
Let Him feel it in our hearts,
Then let us feel His grace and power.

So, let it show in all you're doing,
Let His desire come shining through,
If we're to work for God's purpose.
It starts with me and you.

I enjoyed reading this piece on God's desires - I enjoyed every part of it. Yes, to get the focus off our desires and onto His desires is a healthy way to live.

I sometimes find myself searching for the poetry side of the challenges, because poetry is my favorite part of any and all writings.
This poem really hit home. Thanks so very much!
