Desires of Your Heart

Oh Lord I tried it my way
Telling you what to do
Thinking I knew better
Living apart from You.

Standing on my feet
I made my plans alone.
Making myself unhappy,
My ideas were my own.

Seeing all I'd been through,
You knew I had enough.
My child there is a better way.
This way is not so rough.

Delight yourself in me
Desires of your heart I give.
If you would just commit to me
Your life that you do live.

Rest in my arms so gently.
Trade your plans for mine.
I have such great things for you.
Just leave your past behind.

My power begins to work,
For when you delight in me.
The desires of your heart,
You will soon begin to see.


Deborah J. Birdoes


"Take delight in the Lord, and He will give you your heart's desire.  Psalm 37:4

God is in the center and delights while giving us the desires of our own heart!
The colored sapphires remind us of the joy that comes when those longings and desires are finally fulfilled.
All of our dreams can come true if we have the courage to pursue them. Unknown
