Delight Yourself in the Lord


by Vonette Bright

Delight yourself in the LORD and he will give you the desires of your heart.”  Psalm 37:4 (NIV)

Shirley’s life was one hurt after the other.  Two divorces and the challenges of a blind son had left her aching to be happy.

One day as she read the Bible verse:  “Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart.” she decided to do exactly what it says. Delight in the Lord! She began praising God! – no matter what happened.

The car wouldn’t start.  Praise God.  Her boss was unreasonable that day. Praise to You, Lord.

It wasn’t long before the “desires” of her heart began to change.  Did she suddenly have a wonderful marriage?  A son easy to rear?  No.  She discovered the joy of God’s love and His blessings on her life – despite the circumstances.

Dear one, delight in the Lord.  He will give you the desires of your heart.
