“Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart.” Psalm 37:4 NIV
I learned early on that good things come from God. But I know I don’t understand bad things though….and I’ve never met anyone who does. The age-old question “why do bad things happen to good people”, etc. But one thing I know to be true is that several heart desires have been met when I delight in God…..my spouse, my children, my family, our assignments, my friends, etc. My husband always says that we can bloom wherever we are planted and he is absolutely right.
So even though my heart’s desire to be an action movie star, travel to Spain or hang out with Matt Damon has not been met, I’m sure those desires have nothing to do with delighting in God!
