“Delight thyself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart.”  Psalms 37:4

When I first heard this life-changing scripture, all I could think of was getting the desires of my heart.  I figured that I delighted myself in the Lord.  After all, I prayed, attended WCF and went to Mass every Sunday.  In fact, I was feeling that God was incredible in answering all my prayers.  All I needed now to be happy was a new house with a swimming pool and a piano for my kids to play.

I also heard Angie, our WCF leader say, “Seek the Giver of the gifts, not the gifts,” and “Seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you.” (Matthew 6:33)  I burned with shame thinking that I was viewing God almost like Santa.  In my humility I prayed, “Change my heart, oh God, make me more like You.”

I learned that delighting thyself in the Lord meant putting Him and His will before my own.  I prayed earnestly to do just that.  One day I discovered that I actually burned to know Him better, to discern His will and to tell others how great our God is.  Along the way, He gave me a new house with a swimming pool and a piano.  But he had changed the desires of my heart – I now desire Him above all else.
