Psalm 37:4

Find your delight in the LORD who will give you your heart’s desire.

+++

At first glance, this statement might strike you as untrue.

You may say, “I’ve had a lot of great desires that have not come true despite my faith in God.”

Well, first off (and I am preaching to myself as well), we need to ask ourselves: Am I finding my delight in God?

This is the first part of today’s scripture verse and what comes first in this process.

This takes a LOT of letting go of trying to delight myself.

Is it my ego that is in charge or is it my true self?

When I allow my ego to diminish, my true self can rise.

When I am simply present to life as it unfolds, I find I am delighting in God.

It’s then that I find all kinds of delights around me.

Instead of being lost in my thoughts, I am smiling at strangers and even starting conversations that lead to new delights that I never would have known.

There was a time in my life that I would have never chosen to visit the sick or the imprisoned.

But due to many life changes and a whole lot of letting go, Life directed me to many new things that have warmed my heart.

Be present to each moment of your life with the curiosity and wonder of a child.

Joy is in the making.
