Day Thirty-Eight – The Love Dare: One Wife’s Journey


Back in October 2008...The scripture verse that touched me in particular today is –

Delight yourself in the Lord; and He will give you the desires of your heart. Psalm 37:4

Love fulfills dreams…

Well, of course, if you delight in the Lord, He BECOMES the desire of your heart so that when He gives you more of Himself, your dreams are fulfilled!

That was then, this is now…

Delight yourself in the Lord; and He will give you the desires of your heart. Psalm 37:4

God fulfills dreams. When He becomes our pleasure, He gives us exactly what we want because we come to want Him above all things. Isn’t that a wonderful endless circle?

I delight in the Lord by engaging in worship at every opportunity. Whether it’s noticing a sunrise or sunset, singing at the top of my lungs with the song on the radio while I’m driving home from work, or taking the time to meditate on a verse of scripture or committing it to memory, I do these things for Jesus. I wipe down the sinks in public bathrooms in His name. I make a pot of coffee at work because I love Him. I wash my husband’s clothes or make his lunch because I want to honor my Lord. It’s all about Him, after all.

Father, I come before You in the wonderful name of Jesus to say I love You. I was surprised by the colors in the sunrise this morning, as I am every day. It’s not that they are so different from what we’ve shared on other days. It’s just that they take my breath away every day because they are from You. You truly are my delight, the desire of my heart. Hold me close, today and every day. Amen.
