Desire of a Troubled Christian

I desire many things…Some of those things are great and they are Godly. The others things are not quite so Godly or are at least neutral but definitely not great for my life at this moment. Our flesh and spirit battle each other and will continue to do so regardless but the good news is that because of our constant sanctification in Christ the spirit will always be getting more of a upper hand as we get further along in our lives. God is good and faithful and won’t let his kids fail, not ultimately at least. We may make mistakes here or there but He won’t let us get into anything beyond ourselves. I’m troubled by my ungodly and meaningless desires that hinder me and cause me to be over obsessive. That’s why church and community are key. They help keep us on track.
