Disclaimer: About This Blog

THIS BLOG IS: my personal journey of how I am rethinking some of my spiritual beliefs.
THIS BLOG IS NOT: intended to point fingers at people who I think are wrong.
I do not believe the final judgement will be based on how many correct answers we get on a theology exam. I believe many people throughout history have had genuine relationships with our Lord and Saviour Jesus, despite holding questionable beliefs and practices. I make no claim to having it all figured out or being your judge. If we end up disagreeing over these topics I pray we can find a way to demonstrate grace.

My Delight

Various verses from Psalms (NIV) about what David (and we) should delight in.

1:2
But his delight is in the law of the LORD, and on his law he meditates day and night.

35:9
Then my soul will rejoice in the LORD and delight in his salvation.

37:4
Delight yourself in the LORD and he will give you the desires of your heart.

111:2
Great are the works of the LORD; they are pondered by all who delight in them.
112:1
Praise the LORD. Blessed is the man who fears the LORD, who finds great delight in his commands.

119:16
I delight in your decrees; I will not neglect your word.
119:24
Your statutes are my delight; they are my counselors.
119:35
Direct me in the path of your commands, for there I find delight.
119:47
for I delight in your commands because I love them.

119:70
Their hearts are callous and unfeeling, but I delight in your law.
119:92
If your law had not been my delight, I would have perished in my affliction.
119:143
Trouble and distress have come upon me, but your commands are my delight.

Thank you Lord for your laws, commands, paths for me, statutes, and decrees. Even though I often think I'd rather do things my own way, I know your ways are best for me, and I thank you for revealing your ways to me.

Thank you for your great works (some that I have seen and heard about, others that I have read about in your Word). Thank you for your Salvation - I don't deserve it.

I delight in You.

I pray that I will always live in such a way to show others that you are my delight.
