Psalm 37:4

I’ll never forget the first time I heard this verse. That was more than a decade now. I was not yet a Christian back then, and was in a wrong relationship which I find so hard to come out of. I knew inside that I deserve a better man, a better relationship and a better life, but I was so full of shame and didn’t know where and how to start a new life.

A former colleague sent me a farewell note as I embarked on a journey to a faraway land, and this was what the note says: “Delight yourself in the Lord, and He will give you the desires of your heart.” I burst into tears. It was the most beautiful message I’ve ever heard in my life! It was as if someone heard me as I cried myself to sleep during those many nights and I desperately pray to a God who I wasn’t so sure would even listen to someone as filthy as me.

But He did (and still does).

I didn’t know that it was a passage from the bible back then. But I knew deep inside my heart that it was a message from heaven especially delivered to me.

I needed to hear those words. I needed to believe that after everything I’ve done wrong, there was still hope left to a woman like me who’s gone astray too far.

God, you’re amazing! Where will I be now without you? You keep putting me back on track over and over again! What more could I ask for?

You and only You are my heart’s greatest desire! ❤️😇🙏🏼

    God loves us so much. He knew we could never get out of the mess we made, so he sent his Son Jesus, to take our shame, sin and failures, on himself. His blood cleanses us. He is our joy and strength. Everything I need is found in Jesus.

      Indeed, finding Jesus is the best thing that has ever happened in my life! He made all things new and I wouldn’t trade it for anything else in this world. 🙂

    I love getting simple confirmations like that, it’s a great reminder that God is always with us. I believe everyone feels unworthy or ashamed at some point, but it’s important to remember in those times that we have a God that loves us unconditionally and will stay with us.

  3. It does me a lot of good to remember that I am not talking to a hard-hearted supervisor or a demanding IRS agent, but to my heavenly dad who has a large storehouse at his disposal. He doesn’t say yes to every prayer, but he has good reason when he doesn’t. I sometimes wonder if the reason God says no to our prayers is because he wants to repair our image of him first. That is how HE becomes our heart’s desire.

      Yes, same here. I used to be so afraid of God, not a holy kind of fear, but afraid of being punished. So my tendency was to either rebel or runaway. But that all changed now. I realized I got very poor image of God in my mind. Now, He is my bestfriend and my everything. I wouldn’t trade my relationship with Him, and yes, just like you said, that’s how He became my heart’s desire. 🙂
      God bless you, Brandon! Thanks for stopping by.
