Psalm 37:4-7

I thought I would share with you a daily devotional I get from a wonderful friend of mine. I enjoy these emails and thought you might too!!! (all of this is just part of my new year's GOALS...not resolutions, because resolutions get broken....GOALS get met!!!!)

4) Take delight in the Lord and he will give you your hearts desires. 5) Commit everything you do to the Lord. Trust him and he will help you. 6) He will make your innocence as clear as the dawn and the justice of your cause will shine like noonday sun. 7) Be still in the presence of the Lord, and wait patiently for him to act. Don't worry about evil people who prosper or fret about their wicked schemes. We must take delight in the Lord and to commit everything we have and do to him. But how do we do this? To delight in someone means to experience great pleasure and joy in his or her presence. This happens only when we know that person well. Thus, to delight in the Lord, we must know him better. Knowledge of Gods great love for us will indeed give us delight. To commit ourselves to the Lord means entrusting everything- our lives, families, jobs, possessions- to his control and guidance. To commit ourselves to the Lord means to trust in him believing that he can care for us better than we can ourselves. We should be willing to wait patiently for him to work out what is best for us.
