WFW Psalm 37:4
One of my favorite verses. I have been asking myself alot 'why this verse means so much to me.' And I guess the reason is because of 'what' it means to me. I think alot of people take it to mean that if we trust and believe and delight that God will give us what we 'ask' for . . .
what we 'want'.
And, maybe that is what it means; I actually thought this for a long time. At least until recently when I realized that I desire to be closer to God. To have a closer relationship with Him. As I have made an effort to read and study God's word more. I have begun to pray before I read and ask him to help me to understand. To help me get what he wants me to get out of the scriptures that I read. And, as I strive to have a closer relationship I have realized that many times I run around during the day doing 'things'. Most well intentioned but most days I am doing what 'I' think needs to be done. Good well intentioned 'thing's but not necessarily the things that God wants me to do.
As I think about these words I reconsider 'my desires' and I realize that I want God to put those desires into my heart. So that the 'things' that I desire are things he wants from me; or of me.
Thanks for stopping in today and joining me on my Journey. And, joining me for WFW . . . my first WFW in months! I have missed Wednesday's the most I think. I love adding God's words to my photo's and I love seeing everyone elses work. Please visit Amy for more WFW posts. Click here.
So has God given you new desires today?
