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! ❤️😇🙏🏼
