Desires

Psalms 37:4, "Delight yourself in the Lord; And He will give you the desires of your heart."

Desires are something that can be found in abundance in our world today.  Our dreams and ambitions are bigger and better than ever before.  We find ourselves wanting so much, in short order, and with limited effort.  But in my experience, when we finally capture our desires, they very often only lead to more desires.  It's like finishing a race only to find out that you have one more mile to go, and after that mile, another mile, and so on.  We fix our eyes on the prize, but it is not the "right" prize.

When our desires are place in the right place, achievement is both possible and satisfying.  The Lord should be our desire.  When our goal in life is a closer and deeper relationship with our Creator, we are striving for the very thing we were made for.  Satisfaction will then come from a relationship, not a position or possession. 

An active and growing relationship with God provides the achievement of desires, desires of the heart.

Hi Alex;Thank you for this good work! I am using the translator pgilun right now and I like it. You said in your explanation that there should be language file that the browser recognizes for the pgilun to work(if I am correct). How can they add more language files to the list like for example; Amharic(Ethiopian language), Oromo(spoken in East Africa and uses latin alphabets same as English), Somali(spoken in East Africa), Tigirgna(spoken in East Africa)e.t.c? DO they use language/Country code only or the whole translation?
