The practices of man more often neglect the worship of God.
Unsatisfied loneliness of not having, absent of confidence in God,
causes percolating jealousies and underlying anger. Battling the beast
from within musters the best in us or leaves us defeated.

Festering on the puss of oneís emotions denies holiness
None of our desires are hidden from God
God satisfies the desire of all living things
Only by diligent works can true value be found
Better with good purpose than wandering desires
Desiring a heavenly home is a natural part of hope
Salvation comes by submitting to Godís own truths
Put to death evil desires & all that goes against God
Regrets deliver spiritual strength otherwise missing
Turn from evil and receive the implanted word
The desires of the wicked will perish
Desires absent of Godís will obtain nothing
Walking with Christ denies passions of the flesh
Without peace and holiness one falls short of grace

Desires of the heart create following destinies.
Passion defines purpose.

Darkness has a chilling absence of meaningful time.
