The Fuel of Life

We must not abandon our desire, thinking, "This is what God calls me to". But rather, we must redirect our desire and recognize what we are truly longing for. Desire is a deceiving ally, and will chase what is tangible over what is complete. If we are convinced, however, that a relationship with Christ is the absence of desire, then we have never been more mistaken. For it is not the absence of owning desire in our faith that determines our holiness, but rather our faith, at its core, should be driven by desire. When we begin to see God in everything (practicing His presence) we are graced to understand that this relationship is, from beginning to end, is about desire.
