Delight yourself in the LORD
and he will give you the desires of your heart.
Commit your way to the LORD;
trust in him and he will do this:
He will make your righteousness shine like the dawn,
the justice of your cause like the noonday sun.
I bought Genevieve some of the Seeds Family Worship cds and they are really nice. They have put Bible verses to music, but they sound more contemporary- something the entire family can enjoy listening to it. I just love the idea of having God’s word being instilled in our hearts through music.
Yesterday I was listening to these verses and I felt God really speaking to my heart. If we can find our joy and fulfillment in the Lord, it will change the way we live. As we seek Him to be our all, the things that we desire will be the things of God! And why wouldn’t He want to give us those wants? Our hearts will desire to glorify our Maker and to honor the King of Kings!
Yet, true to God’s nature, He says that if we do this He will take care of us, of our reputation. We need not worry about anything but submitting our lives to Him. He will take care of the rest. What a freeing truth, if we could only grasp it.
I just wanted to share a little something that happened this evening. Genevieve and I were visiting with Jean Marie and Aunt Jeri. While Aunt Jeri was in the kitchen preparing food, Jean Marie was standing at the doorway, asking to be picked up. She was starting to get a little upset, so I told Genevieve to go over and cheer up her cousin.
Genevieve walked up to Jean Marie and started to give her kisses! I just thought that was so sweet-at such a young age to understand compassion and to know that kissing Jean Marie would cheer her up. What a precious moment that was!
