Oops...I almost forgot...

"Take delight in the Lord, and He will give you your heart's desires. Commit your way to the Lord; trust in Him, and he will act, making your righteousness like the noonday. Be silent before the Lord, and wait expectantly for Him..."

I love this passage. It lists a few things: He wil give me my heart's desires, He will act, and He will make my righteousness like the noonday. Isn't that awesome, or am I forgetting something? Oh yeah, before God can do anything, I gotta do a few things too. I must:

1.Delight in the Lord
2.Commit my way to the Lord
3.Trust in Him
4. Be silent before the Lord
5.Wait expectantly for Him

God's got the easy part. We have more work to do. How's my heart? My state of mind, my state of heart? What do I want? I may desire certain things, but in the end, it's up to God.

Look at this:
If I want something I need to delight in the Lord, and commit myself to Him. I need to trust that He will grant those desires. Do you see what is wrong here? It's all about ME! I want, I want, I want! Suddenly God is like "Be QUIET! Be silent and do not speak!" We shut our mouths and all we can do now is wait. After waiting for a while we suddenly realize, "Hey, wait a minute! What I wanted is not what God wants!"
What do we do then? We start all over from the beggining, but this time with a more humble and contrite heart. Ok, Lord, I want to delight in you, so you can show me my heart's, my soul's, my spirit's true desires. That's when God rubs His hands together and says, "Now we can do buissness." He presses hard into us, molding us shaping us. It doesn't feel nice, but the more He does it, the more we realize that we need Him to do it.
I need that right now. I need that brokeness. My heart's desire right now is to serve the Lord, let Him be my only love. Idols get in the way, and I need to cast those away, and focus on Him alone.

So what does God want for you today?

… Unbelievable , but I just found software which can do all hard work promoting your website on complete autopilot - building backlinks and getting your website on top of Google and other search engines 1st pages, so your site finally can get laser targeted qualified traffic, and so you can get lot more visitors for your website.

YEP, that’s right, there’s this little known website which shows you how to get to the top 10 of Google and other search engines guaranteed.

I used it and in just 7 days… got floods of traffic to my site...

…Well check out the incredible results for yourself -

I’m not trying to be rude here, but I believe when you find something that finally works you should share it…

…so that’s what I’m doing today, sharing it with you:

Take care - your friend Jennifer
