Now before you go getting the wrong idea about what this post is about.....
read a bit further!
I came across a verse of scripture twice recently,
as I was actually doing some research on the word "attitude".
When I read this Bible verse,
it seemed that the word "lust" kept jumping out at me.
Besides the obvious definition of lust,
it also simply means.....
an intense longing;
a strong desire for something.
(not necessarily someone)
I felt God speaking to me about my own intense longing for acceptance, acknowledgement, encouragement and understanding. These are things that I way too often expect from other people when in truth only God can satisfy those desires. He's the only One who can fill that void that I sometimes feel inside.
"slaves to many lusts"
"lives full of evil and envy"
"put to death the sinful, earthly things lurking within you"
"it is what comes from inside that defiles you"
What about you all?
Do you sometimes find yourself having too high an expectation out of others?
Maybe even after it's been proven many times over that they aren't willing to budge an inch?
Or, are you (unlike me) able to just give it all to God and let Him supply your every longing?
