Does your desires align with your purpose

Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He shall give you the desires of your heart.
Psalm 37:4 (NIV)

Searching for your purpose can be overwhelming and terrifying. You might ask, “What if my desires don’t come to light?”

Well let me tell you this, my friend. God cares more about what’s in your heart. So, think of it like this. Do your desires align with God’s purpose for you? How do you know for sure? What do you enjoy doing more than anything?

Get to know God better, through prayer, scripture, and meditation. Seek Him with all your heart. Do not lean on your own understanding. Proverbs 3:5 (NKJV)

Know what pleases God and what God detests.

Do your desires please God or yourself?
