Desire, Reason and Will

As human beings it is natural for us to desire things.  Perhaps we desire a degree, a better job, a spouse, children,  a nice home or car; perhaps we want to have more friends, or to be closer to God,  and so on.  The list of things that we might desire could be a long list.

Reason can be employed to achieve the fulfillment of those desires.  Sometimes, when we apply reason, we realize that certain desires should be discarded as unworthy or unreasonable.  Other times, it may be difficult to craft a plan by which we may successfully attain our desires.  Other times, we will be able to conceive a plan that should work.

Once we have a plan, we still must have the will power to see that plan through to its conclusion.  Sometimes the plan must be modified and adopted to changing circumstances.  Sometimes we lack the necessary skill or resources to follow through.

Sometimes we don’t even try.

Sometimes we quit.

Yet, sometimes….. we succeed.
