Happy Friday! I’m really excited to explore more of Puerto Escondido this weekend! Rachel said we are going to do some rock walk… I’m not sure all she said is it is really pretty and we’re going to want to take a lot of pictures. Lol that’s all the info I needed! 🙂 Today is a really beautiful day. The weather is actually manageable… Aka I’m not sweating a gallon of sweat, yet.
So on to today’s post! I’m sharing one of my favorite verses. Since I’m transitioning into a new season of my life I feel like this verse is so encouraging. I pray that everyone has a safe and fun Memorial Day weekend!
“May he give you the desire of your heart and make all your plans succeed.” Psalm 20:4 NIV
“Delight yourself in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart.”
Psalm 37:4 NIV
Delight simply means to greatly please. So when you delight in the Lord is means you are pleasing Him or honoring Him. When you please Him He will give you the desires of your heart. This doesn’t mean He will give you that new pair of shoes you’ve been “desiring,” but rather the TRUE desires of your heart. When your heart’s desires match up with The Word He will give you the desires of your heart.
A few years ago I didn’t feel like I had a lot of Godly friendships. It was a really difficult time of my life. I had a few friends but I desired to have close Godly friendships. I prayed and prayed. One day I realized that God had given me the desires of my heart and I didn’t even realize it. He placed some of my closest friends in my life and I still can’t believe I’ve been blessed with such great friendships.
Maybe you desire to hear from God. Maybe you desire to have a closer relationship with Him. Maybe you desire Godly friendships. Whatever you desire, God wants to bless you. He wants to give you the desires of your heart.
Find pleasure in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart! Happy Thursday!
