I'm continuing the study "Makeover of the Heart" and we're into week two. You can join in with Tracy over At the Well. She's got videos and a printable guide for you to complete. The topic for this week is:
A heart that delights in the Lord
Delight myself in the Lord. What does that look like? If I delight in the Lord, I will desire to spend time with Him each day. I want to give Him the first fruits of my day; a priority. Sitting at His feet. Spending time with Him.
Since I was a little girl, I've had the tendency to be a people pleaser. As I've matured, I realize I'm not going to please everyone. And frankly, it can be kind of exhausting attempting to do so. So I guess I can call myself a ...reformed people pleaser?
Sometimes the desires of my heart can impact other people. I think of a dog who comes out of the water. What is the first thing he does? You guessed it! He shakes the water off and often someone gets wet.

Because of past trust issues, I've had the tendency to attempt to protect my heart by not having expectations. I remember my brother and me saying if we don't count on it, we won't be disappointed.
I'm learning that people may disappoint but ...God never does.
He is trustworthy.
So, I want to give Him my entire heart. I am going to pray for His will in my life and that His desires for me would become my desires too.
Blessings and love,
