A Humble Desire

LORD, thou hast heard the desire of the humble: thou wilt prepare their heart, thou wilt cause thine ear to hear. Psalm 10:17

(A rose blooming in our yard. This beautiful photo was taken by my younger sister. )
"A humble desire is one which leaves everything in God's hands. The man who has it says, 'Now, though I desire this, it may be it is not a right desire. Lord, I desire only to desire what I ought to desire! My desire is that Your desire should be written on my heart, that I may desire what You desire.' Your will be done in my soul, in my body, in my circumstances, and in me, in all respects."

-Charles H. Spurgeon
