Finding Joy In Unfulfilled Desire

June 10, 2015

“Our generation has lost the concept of finding joy in unfulfilled desire. We no longer know what it means to hope. We want what we want now. Unsatisfied desire has become to us like a bad toothache that justifiably demands quick relief at any cost. It was meant to be road sign pointing us on to a better place.”

Dr. Larry Crabb, Shattered Dreams, Page 85

Questions for Reflection:
• Consider a current frustration or loss in your life.
• In what ways are you responding to it with a demand for immediate relief?
• How might it instead be an opportunity to deepen your joy and hope in God Himself?
• Ask the Holy Spirit to give you a vision of what He desires to do within you and in those around you through this difficulty.
