Sometimes when life is hard and I get a bit discouraged, I take out my old journals and read the words,
I am reminded, whispers of promise peek through the praise,
I think of all the times that the Lord has blessed my life,
When I look around, and see the beauty,
Then I want to delight in Him.
Suddenly I am reminded of the hope in tomorrow,
And for blessings on the way.
Psalm 37:4 NIV
" Delight yourself in the LORD
and he will give you the desires of your heart."
The song for this post is I Delight In You.
Later this afternoon, I picked up a favorite book which I had bookmarked with a card with my Grandmother's name, Helen written on it. I read the page I had bookmarked. There was the same verse about Delighting yourself in the Lord. I knew that it was surely the message for today. I sat with my cup of tea, and spent a bit longer reading my devotional.
