Happy Children Playing Kids

“Delight yourself in the LORD and he will give you the desires of your heart.”- Psalm 37:4

“We need to cheer again?” I asked my young niece as we were in between plays of bocce ball at a family picnic.

“Yes!” she exclaimed, “We need to cheer every time!” We would then go into our crazy cheer that we made up. I considered it my aerobics for the day. It truly was a delight to have such fun with my three nieces. There is something about a child being happy to see you, giving you a hug, and wanting to play with you. It delights my heart.

I think this is how God is delighted when we are happy to be with him, giving spiritual hugs in praise and thanksgiving, and wanting to do something with him. It delights his heart as well as ours.

You know how you want to give good gifts to children. Well, God knows how to give good gifts to us, his children. They are always perfect. He knows exactly what we need at every moment.

Prayer: Dear Father, you are a delight. Thank you for always being there for us and for the great gifts you give us. I pray that for more special times with you each day. Amen

Faith tip: Spend some time today delighting in the Lord.
