As the deer pants for water, so I long for you, O God.

Psalm 42:1

Our desires today are different from those we had before we entered Christ-centered recovery. We had desires that were self-centered and self-seeking. We wanted what we wanted, and we wanted it immediately. We had difficulty delaying gratification. Our desires consumed us, and soon we were lost in our selfishness and greed.

In recovery we still have desires, but the things we desire are not always about ourselves. We now have requests for others and their welfare. Even when feel we have been wronged, we are still able to pray for those who wronged us. We desire the best for others in all areas of their lives.We desire to serve and love, trying to be more like Christ each day.

In Mark chapter 10 we see James and John asking Jesus if they can sit on His right and left in His glory. ohn and James had aspirations and ambition. Jesus did not try to take away their ambition instead He redirected them toward loving and serving others. The same is true for us. When our desires are focused on loving Christ and others, our self-centered desires seem to diminish. We lose interest in the things of this world and gain interest in the things that please God.

Today’s Prayer
Lord Jesus, You are who I desire to follow today. I am losing the desire for selfish gain and I’m more able to desire what’s important to You and to serving others. Lord help me to desire only what is good and pleasing to You. Amen.
