Lord, Your Desire, Not Mine

Delight yourself also in the Lord,
And He shall give you the desires of your heart. (Psalm 37:4, NKJV)

This past Sunday, I made my second visit to a friend's church. This was the first visit I'd made where I was able to hear the senior pastor preach. I absolutely loved this church! My desire is to start attending permanently. The problem with that is that my friend would be unable to give me a ride there each week. There's another catch here though. This is my desire. This may not be the desire God has for me. Ladies, do you have a great desire that you feel God isn't granting? Remember, it may not be His desire for you.

Father, I pray each reader. Grant her the desire of her heart. Amen.


  1. Jamie, I'll be praying for you in this decision. Does the pastor post his sermons online? This is one reason I love the internet. I'm able to listen to pastors all over the world that I wouldn't be able to do otherwise.

    In our house selling/buying process my constant prayer is "Lord, help me to follow well."

    Great post, my friend!

  2. Jamie,

    Your thoughts are similar today as Proverbs 31 devo - how awesome how the Lord works and has similar themes in our lives. May He provide a wonderful church home for you. Thank you for sharing your heart dear one.

    Love, Hester ;)

  3. How wonderful that you enjoyed the church you attended, Jamie! God will lead you where He wants you to go.

  4. Joining you in praying His will be done for you, my friend!

  5. Great job Jamie! Obedience is difficult to learn - resting in His sovereignty, trusting, being still....but the treasures are great. God has a beautiful plan for your life sweetheart. Love you!
