Often we look at this verse and believe God giving us the desires of our heart refers to the present desires our heart holds when in actuality it means that God will give desires to our hearts. He will place desires into the depths of our hearts; HIS desires.
When asked to do something, do it as if it is a command directly from Jesus for it is He we work for. Do it with the same sort of enthusiasm and humility because we get the PRIVILEGE to work for Jesus!

A person condemned to Hell walks by, and we're ok with that? A broken heart walks by, and we're ok with that? We figure, if they come, they come; if it's God's time, it's God's time. In Isaiah 6:8, God asks, "Whom shall I SEND?" Not who will stand and wait for people to come for me, but who can I send. Mark 16:15 - [Jesus] said to them, "Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation." GO, not wait around! So here I am, Lord send me.

You're my rock when I deserve quicksand, my everything when I deserve nothing, my vine when I deserve thistles, my love when I deserve hatred, my beauty when I deserve beastly, my peace when I deserve turmoil, my strenth when I deserve weakness, my joy when I deserve sorrow, my strong tower when I deserve ruins, my purification when I deserve pollution, my healer when I deserve affliction, my provider when I deserve taker, my prince when I deserve warlock, my bread when I deserve crumbs, my bright morning star when I deserve complete darkness, my comforter when I deserve corrupter, my consuming fire when I deserve ashes, my living water when I deserve mud, my eagle when I deserve buzzard, my shield when I deserve exposure, my truth when I deserve lies, my wisdom when I deserve stupidity, my way when I deserve wandering, and my life when I deserve death. Your mercy wipes out all that I deserve. Your grace gives me the perfection in exchange, for perfection You are and from Your son, therefore am I. Dear Great I Am, past has past and perfection has presented to this once disgusting creature. Your Princess now sings.
