Delight in God has a transforming power and lifts a man above the gross desire of our fallen nature.
~Charles H. Spurgeon
Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord; Trust in Him and He will do this: He will make your righteousness shine like the dawn, the justice of your cause like the noonday sun. Psalm 37:4-6
Delight. Commit. Trust.
Each day I pray that we will learn more about how to delight ourselves in the Lord. I commit myself and our marriage anew to Him each morning. I trust in Him and Him alone to be Lord of my life and of our home.
We have learned to live without owning much in the past five years. Even more so these past few months here in Belize. We have minimal furniture; 6 chairs, a table and a futon to sleep on ...all borrowed. We only have the clothes that were in our suitcases. Our boxes are on their way here from Russia but we have no idea how long it will take for them to arrive. We are still waiting for payments to come through from the sale of our apartment.
All we have is God and each other.
That is enough.
Don't get me wrong... we both would love to have a real bed. Waking up each morning with pain wracked bodies from a flimsy futon mattress is not something we take delight in. We would love to have a car so that we could explore more of this beautiful new land that God has called us to. But all of those things will come in time.
We have committed ourselves to serving Him. We trust in Him. He truly is our source of delight.
