What are You Delighting in Today?

One of my favorite verses in the Psalms is Psalm 37:4, which states, “Delight yourself in the Lord, and He will give you the desires of your heart.” Many think this means that God will give them what they personally want. However, what the verse really means is that when we seek the Lord and make Him our everything He will give us His desires. Although, if we are honest, that is not what we want to hear at times. We want God to give us what we want, at the time we want it. We want God to send us our future spouse now, to allow us to have a baby now, get the job that we want now, or to be healed of a sickness now. None of those examples are bad desires, and are God given ones, but where we so often miss the mark is when we put those desires before our desire for Jesus Christ. As I was reading this verse the other day I was convicted that I too often get wrapped up in what I want instead of sitting at the feet of Jesus and simply asking, “What do you want from me today Lord, show me your desires.” It’s a choice we have to make daily. Are we going to delight in the Lord and seek His face because we love what he loves, or are we going to continue to dwell on what we want?

God wants the best for His children and He desires for our desires to be fulfilled. However, He wants us to seek Him first and trust Him to do what He thinks is best. When we do that our desires will be His, and only then will we be truly content. Who are you delighting in today? Yourself or Jesus? I have attached a song to this post titled “Choose” by Christy Nockels. Listen to it and make it your prayer for today. Spend some time with the Savior and ask, “What do you want Jesus?”

Why My Walk of Grace?

Hello friends and welcome to my new blog. If you know me and have visited my blog before you will notice that some changes have taken place including the change of name, and that my previous posts are no longer here. I love to write, and share my story and the Lord has been leading me to be more purposeful in doing that through my blog. The name “My Walk of Grace” originated with the help of my friend Renee (check out her awesome blog at: http://devotionaldiva.com). I chose it because it describes my life both spiritually as well as physically. I am so thankful to be saved by the grace of Jesus Christ, and humbled to receive that grace everyday. I also have a disability called Cerebral Palsy that requires me to use arm-crutches to assist with my walking, It is only by His grace that I am able to get up and walk each day and there is not a day that goes by that I do not thank God for giving me that ability. I hope that you will continue to visit my blog as I continue to share about “my walk of grace,” and I look forward to learn about yours as well.

Fall Fun!

      On Friday, my best friend brought me lunch along with Colby, one of the kids she nannies for.  It was a perfect fall day for him to play in my yard, and we convinced him to let us take the pictures you see posted!  I thought they turned out well, and were too cute not to share!  Hope you enjoy!  Happy Monday! 🙂
