Just a Monday Morning Thought

By Patrick Hawthorne


“I Have Decided…I will not be a dream sitter.”

Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart (Psalm 37:4.)

The word, “delight,” from its root, means to be pliable, or delicate. To delight ourselves in the Lord indicates that we need to freely submit ourselves to the Lord so that He has free reign to mold us and to form us to the image of the dream that He has placed within us. To state it simply, we need to quit squirming and trust that our Heavenly Father knows how to bring us to the fulfillment of the dream He has placed within us.

Trusting in God means that we quit meddling with His plans. By allowing Him to have free reign He might just surprise you by having you do something you never dreamed of… Be blessed.

  3. So very true…how much time do we waste on being upset with God for not following our plan instead of trusting in the FACT that His plan for us is the better one?


  4. Yes’m…I have been known to meddle and then get upset…Yep, I have been a bondafide bone head.
