    So many scriptures refer to the desire. There are several ways of looking at this. Desire can be viewed as an object of ones affection or as an obstacle in reaching ones fulfillment. Too often the pleasures which are associated with desire are connected with the pain that a person may be experiencing.

    I believe that what we say comes from our hearts. It's a heart matter! That may not be a good thing. It's time to clean out some of old stuff that keeps us drom speaking the right things!
