My Heart's Desire!

 Don't you just love those two words together....heart's desire?  

When I hear them, I think of a dream....a HOPE....something that is longed for.  I've used that term several times lately, applying it to myself and some things that are truly my own "heart's desire".  

As I asked God to speak to me thru His word a few weeks ago....I was led that morning to Psalm 37.  Several of the verses could be applied to a situation in my life....but what jumped off the page at me were these words in verse 4....

Take delight in the Lord,
      and he will give you your heart’s desires.

One of the greatest things that my own heart longs for is to see our precious GRAND-sons give their little hearts to Jesus and go thru the waters of baptism.  You will probably hear this Nannie shouting from wherever you may be at the time!!!

 I HOPE that God sends Pappy just the right job that He wants him to have.....of course, God already knows my heart's desire is for Pappy to be able to "retire".....NOW!!!

And....I have a HOPE that God will send His blessings down on  

So, what about you?
Do you have a few "heart's desires" of your own?

In His Most Precious Love....and with mine!!!

  3. Deb,
    I happened to see your link on 'bassgiraffes' blog hop and followed it to your Jeremiah 29:11 scripture commentary.
    We've been friends for quite awhile and I've never taken the time to contemplate why you use Jeremiah 29:11 as your blog title...(I know, sometimes I have to be hit over the head to see what's right under my nose...lol)
    I did a little studying myself on that scripture and would like to share what the Spirit has taught me. Jeremiah was prophesying of the 70 year captivity of the Israelites. Basically they would be taken captive because of their wickedness. After 70 years, they would begin to repent and humble themselves and the Lord would fulfill the promises made to them.
    It reminds me that though ofttimes I commit transgressions and even sin against what I know (the heart is willing, but the spirit is weak)
    I can truly repent and seek His forgiveness and he will bless me.

  4. I love Psalms, and i agree with you that the phrase 'heart's desire' brings a flood of emotion to my soul. Psalms 37:4 reminded me of another scripture...Alma 29:4
    "I ought not to harrow up in my desires the firm decree of a just God, for I know that he granteth unto men according to their adesire, whether it be unto death or unto life; yea, I know that he allotteth unto men, yea, decreeth unto them decrees which are unalterable, according to their bwills, whether they be unto salvation or unto destruction."

    My hearts desire is to return home to my Heavenly Father and my Savior, to wash their feet with my tears.
