Desires

CS-Lewis-warm_thumb[3]

Creatures are not born with desires unless satisfaction for those desires exists. A baby feels hunger: well, there is such a thing as food. A duckling wants to swim: well, there is such a thing as water. Men feel sexual desire: well, there is such a thing as sex. If I find in myself a desire which no experience in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that I was made for another world. (Mere Christianity 120) C.S. Lewis

Friend and colleague of J.R.R. Tolkien, faculty of English at Oxford, and writer or the very popular Chronicles of Narnia series. A small portion of his life was turned into a film, Shadowlands starring Anthony Hopkins and Debra Winger. Not bad for a stuffy scholar from Belfast.

Ambitions

When you lay aside your personal goals, desires, and ambitions, that is when God will reveal the goals, desires, and ambitions that He has for you. Greg Laurie

This year I am revamping my own goals and desires to follow God’s more closely. It definitely does not look to be easier, but I trust God that it will be better, in what ways, I have no idea.

Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV) For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
