FROM THE PASTOR:
Desire for God Satisfies all Desires
God is great. Every heart should pray for God’s presence because only God is the goal that satisfies the heart; for in God lies the answer to every desire of the heart. When you find God, all other desires vanish. Until man finds God, he will continue to long for whatever else he believes will make him happy. But to him who has God, instant fulfillment of all desires comes automatically.
There are two kinds of desires: 1) those desires that help us to find God, and 2) those desires that obstruct us to find God. All desires must be satisfied in a divine way. When we try to satisfy our desires in a worldly way, our difficulties would multiply. Always seek guidance of God and your conscience within you in trying to fulfill your desires.
Every day sit quietly for a while and analyze yourself and get rid of all the desires that obstruct you to find God. Be more detached and you will conquer your unwanted desires. Our first desire should be: “Set your heart first on the Kingdom and justice of God and all these things will also be given to you”. Mt. 6/33
