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.

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

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

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

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

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

Their hearts are callous and unfeeling, but I delight in your law.
If your law had not been my delight, I would have perished in my affliction.
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.
