My Heart's Desire....

It has happened twice today. A desire of my heart has been granted! YES!

Don't get me wrong, I don't think that everything I want I will be given. But, when I am focused on Him and my heart is aligned with His, the odds are better! These two things - perhaps not "big" things in the scheme of things, but definitely high on my "heart's desire" list today!

As I think of that term - "heart's desire" - I wonder exactly what that entails... sometimes I don't have the words to describe it.... and other times the describable "wants" are clearly not in my best interest. Then again, if I notice where I am focused, things become clearer.

As I began to think further, I was reminded of this verse:

Psalm 37:4 (NIV)

4 Delight yourself in the LORD
and he will give you the desires of your heart.

It makes sense to me.... for as I "delight in" the Lord, I admire and adore Him. I become appreciative of Him and content in and with Him. It is then that our hearts align.

At that point in my thought process, the chorus of a song I used to sing at church ran through my head - and I found myself singing in the kitchen as I prepared for work...

You alone are my strength, my shield
To you alone may my spirit yield
You alone are my heart's desire
And I long to worship thee

Yeah.... that's it.

When I can be "there", life is good.

So, right now.... life is good!

Thank You God!
