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

The word “delight” in the Hebrew from the above verse means to be soft and pliable.  As we find our pleasure in worshiping God and meditating upon His word, we are to allow Him to reveal to us those areas of our lives that need His gentle correction.  Like a skillful gardener, He prunes us so that we bear more fruit.  When we allow our Father God to minister to us in this way, doors open for Him to grant us the secret petitions of our hearts.
When God corrects us, it is never pleasant, but if we allow Him to have His way, we will see Him perform wonders within us and upon our circumstances.  As we spend time with Him, He incubates desires deep within us that, in His timing, will be fulfilled - as we delight ourselves in Him.  Let’s choose to be soft and pliable before our Father God.  As we do, we invite Him to move mightily upon the canvass of our lives.

Healing Grace

The Lord our Healer
By Your grace
We are made whole

A flash of lightning from Your hands
Restores all that's broken
Creative miracles
Born by the atonement

Healing grace
Flows as we seek Your face
A byproduct of a life
Focused on the heart of God

Healing comes
Sometimes in a moment
Sometimes as a gradual incline
Sometimes not until we reach
The heavenly gate

Your promise is true
You forgive all our sins
You heal all our diseases

You are the Lord who heals us
By Your grace
We are made whole

I was lost

In a sea of gray
All my efforts led me astray
Religious ways
Left me like a withered skeleton
Dead works crowned me with illusion
Then light danced
Like a meteor out of the sky
Revelation filled my eyes
Truth revealed
Grace filled me
With resurrection life
Now I skip and leap
To Love’s harmonies 
Freedom fills the air
I am privileged
Because of Christ’s cross
Because of the mystery
Of Your divine mercy
