My heart is full of desires......
Many are for my children to succeed and to be prosperous in their lives....
For their every need to be met and for God's favor to be a continuous rain over them.
I have desires for my family and friends....
For happiness and joy to be a foundation in a world that screams sadness and despair.
For every struggle to strengthen their faith and victory to chant their names.
And I have my own desires, those that I have hidden deep within the core of my very being...
Tucked away behind the beating of my heart.....
Secured and intertwined around my soul.
Delight yourself in the Lord, and He will give you the desires of your heart.
I love that verse. It reminds me that my daddy God loves me so much that He will give me my desires. He will shower me, his daughter, with those things which I hold in my heart.
But notice the first part of the verse...."delight yourself in the Lord"
To delight ourselves in the Lord is when our hearts truly find peace and fulfillment in Him.
It is when our desires line up with His will for our lives.
It could the desire for a new job and He has said "wait, do not settle, I have a better one coming"
Maybe it's a relationship that is being desired, the longing to love and be loved.
But He's saying...." Hold on and don't rush. I have the perfect one just for you, the one who will love you as I want you to be loved."
The home you have dreamed of, or the healing you have waited on for years on end.
Whatever the desire that you hold to will be given but according to His will.
"For my thoughts are not your thoughts, and My ways are not your ways, says the Lord. " For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts.
His way is always better than our way.....
His plans are bigger and brighter....
His blessings are more than we can imagine.
Hold on to the desires of your heart and delight yourself in Him.
As I continue to whisper my desires to Him, I wait for His will to be done.
My desires.....His will,
