What do you delight in?
Is it buying something new for your house? Do you delight in fresh baked cookies, warm from the oven?
When it comes to people, I greatly delight spending time with family and friends.
But when thinking about things, I delight in the sight of terra cotta pots, empty on the shelves. My eyes widen, I hold my breath, and my heart catches in my throat. I have quite a nice collection of pots on the shelves in my little corner of our garage; nothing fancy, but a variety of sizes and many aged with moss. I do not know if I delight in just the pots themselves or the promise of beauty yet to come; that which I so hope for as spring nears and warm breezes melt the snow.
But flower pots are, after all, just worldly goods, and I know that they break easily.
The pots will not last forever.
But my relationship with Christ will, and I so delight in this knowledge.
I delight in spending time with Him, sitting at His knee in prayer
or in reading his Word. I delight singing His praises.
I delight in sharing Him with others, especially with my grandchildren.
It is when I delight in Him and spend time with Him that I have all my heart desires,
for the rest ~ family, home, love and contentedness come from this.
in the Lord,
and He will give you
of your heart."
