Our Daily Bread Designs Bible Verse Thursday Challenge #33 - Longing for Perfection

"Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart."  ~Psalm 37:4

Sometimes it's hard to remember that we live in a fallen world:  an abnormal world tainted by sin.  Much frustration and failure result from our seeking perfection in this life.  There is nothing perfect in this world except the Father.  That is why closeness to Him satisfies our deep yearnings and fills us with joy.

He has planted this longing for perfection in every human heart.  This is a good desire, which He alone can fulfill.  Unfortunately, most people seek this fulfillment in other people and earthly pleasures or achievements.  They create idols before which they bow down.  The Lord says: "You shall have no other gods before Me! "  Make Him the deepest desire of your heart and let him fulfill your deepest longing for perfection.

Your challenge this week is to create a project using this scripture or another verse that describes our longing for perfection or God's desire to use that longing to to fulfill our desires.  When uploading your project, please use keyword ODBDBVT33 and then hop over to Our Daily Bread Designs Forum to share what you've created with us!
