Psalm 37:4 Take delight in the LORD, and he shall give you your heart’s desire.
I realize my interest in attending retreats, reading books about spirituality, and writing on these topics makes me “an odd duck,” but these are desires planted in my heart that bring me delight.
I was sharing with a friend how much I enjoy writing, and she said, “That’s God’s good pleasure for you.” In the movie Chariots of Fire, Olympian Eric Liddell says, “When I run, I feel God’s pleasure.” When we love God, God plants desires in our hearts and is happy to fulfill them.
MOVING FORWARD: What is your heart’s desire? Are you giving it the space and attention God wants?
