As we approach our fifth wedding anniversary, I am so thankful to be so in love with my husband. When he walked into the room earlier to make sure I was okay, my first reaction was simply that I was so delighted to see him. Whenever he comes home from work I am delighted that we can enjoy another evening together. Yesterday he brought our girls home from a sleepover at their grandparents, and as I stood in the garden watching them all get out of the car and run over to me for big hugs, my heart delighted in my family being home once again.
It is such a mind boggling thought to me that the God who created this universe, who sent His Son to die for my sins, who is all knowing, all powerful and ever present delights in me.
Psalm 147 vs 11
“The Lord delights in those who fear him, who put their hope in his unfailing love.”
I often like to think of God waiting for me to spend time with Him in the morning. That when I walk bleary eyed into the laundry room and put my coffee mug down on the vacuum cleaner I use as a side table, He is already here waiting for me, delighting in me, looking forward to opening up truth in His Word to me. He delights in making Himself and His will for my life known, He delights in explaining to me what his unfailing love really means.
