Desires.

“It is a safe thing to trust Him to fulfill the desires which He creates” - Amy Carmichael


Why must I become so impatient? Why do I question, & worry, & think that somehow I know best? 
Often, I mistake my dreams & hopes as desires... but He has a way of reminding me. My dreams aren't "bad" -- but they aren't His
He is faithful. He will satisfy the desires. He will say no, or not now, to the hopes & dreams. And I will gladly do His will... Because in the end it's so much bigger and better than anything I will leave behind.

"You open your hand; you satisfy the desire of every living thing." - Psalm 145:16 

"Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a desire fulfilled is a tree of life." - Proverbs 13:12

I love this. I am a dreamer and sometimes I have to stop and ask myself if my dreams are from God or just my dreams. It's nice to know I'm not the only one. :)

"a desired fulfilled is a tree of life." That is absolutely true.

and you're right, I also mistake my dreams and hopes as desires. So grateful that the Lord is patient with us.
