Wednesday Delight

Resigning from my job and deciding to take a rest for some days before starting the new one not only did give me time to get that rest that I need but it lets me do some things I've been meaning to do. I am so delighted to be back doing Word Filled Wednesday.

Last weekend we brought the nephew to the mall and had hist haircut done in one of the barber shop there. As usual he cried a lot that we have to bribe him with his favorite spaghetti after. This is one of the things that gives him joy. He did enjoy it despite him not feeling so well then.

 
 "Your law is my delight.
- Psalm 119:174


Looking at this photo and just about every child taking delight on little things had put me into some thinking mode this whole week. Once again I have to ask myself what are the things that gives me joy and how they how much they matter in my life. I am glad to note that all of them come only next to God and my family (and friends and the people around me). Many times in our lives we get too passionate over the things which delight us that we are so easily manipulated by temptations. Sometimes these things make some lives so tragic because they let these things rule over them forgetting God and their families. Psalm 119:174 reminds us once again on the thing that matters most.

Look around you and ask yourself, do you love God more than those things. God takes delight in us, how can we help but take delight in Him?

This verse wouldn't have occurred to me had I not read it today. But, yes, in my situation, I need this. "I long for your salvation, O LORD, and your law is my delight."
How I long for Your salvation.

What a cute photo! The verse is convicting and something we need to continually remind ourselves. Have a blessed WFW!

I was thinking about this scripture yesterday and praying that that would be my heart's cry. Cute graphic, too! :O)

I always think of Beth Moore asking God to delight her and then showing her a baby bear and her running, so excited that she got her delight. But I also know that God delights me...sometimes I'm too busy to notice. I wonder how many times He's put things in motion to delight me and I didn't see them.
