Lust: an emotion or feeling of intense desire in the body. The lust can take any form such as the lust for knowledge, the lust for sex or the lust for power.
a burning, intense desire for something is not necessarily wrong. Yes, it is good to be balanced and level-headed, however, it is also good to have desires.
What do you desire? Me…
I have a strong, intense desire to truly know GOD. To know everything there is to know – why the Creator of the Universe as called me to HIMSELF – through Jesus Christ. I strongly desire to know how being in relationship with GOD empowers me to live a life with HIM in mind. A life of freedom from WANTING to do wrong.
I desire to let go of all the negative energies that come my way; those as a result of things that I give off and those given off by people who don’t quite understand who I am. Either way, my desire is for the negative energies be converted into positive, helpful energies that benefits me and the people sending them.
I have a strong desire for knowledge: It is manifested by my love for books. It is manifested in my wanting to read everyone’s stories and find the differences and the similarities of their stories with mine. To me… life is a story… life is a book. Chapter by chapter, story by story – this life leads us to something. A desire for books is not wrong.
I have a strong desire for beauty — this is manifested by my love of clothes. Life is colorful and beautiful and the clothes that you chose to wear, reflects your love of colors. I just like to have many choices 🙂 There is nothing wrong with that.
I have a strong, strong desire for peace. It’s manifested in my willingness to be a doormat to people who I refuse to give up hope on. That’s why I have said nothing about being harassed through Facebook contacts and coded messages, through bogus phone calls on the job, through phony people trying to be friends in order to continue on the harassments. Through it all — my strong desire is for peace. There is nothing wrong with that.
Loving GOD changes what we LUST for. Word games and bad intentions cannot separate us from the love of GOD. GOD’s love gives me the strength that I need to love myself. With all my faults, there is still something redeemable about me. NO MATTER WHAT.
I’ve met some really crazy, crazy people – and for a while, I thought I was crazy too. But GOD has called me to HIMSELF – through Jesus Christ.
2 Timothy 1:7… For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
