So I was always raised in church and I have always struggled with having "heart knowledge" of God's word and not just "head knowledge". Heart knowledge being defined as the ability to put the faith and trust in God to match the verses from the bible that we all can quote. Well, I've always been reminded of and heard preached is Psalm 37:4. The NKJV version says it like this:
"Delight yourself in the Lord, and He will give you the desires of your heart."
I have always heard that and have only seen it come to fruition in my life once. Not that God hasn't been faithful but I've always been bad about focusing myself on any one thing. I would haphazardly say "I want this" or "I want to do that" or "I want to go there" but I've never really set goals and stuck to them. The one time I remember that scripture becoming heart knowledge was the conception and birth of my daughter over 6 years ago. The last six years have had me really contemplating what the desires of my heart even were. I feel like I finally figured it all out about 3 years ago. I set some personal and professional goals for myself. This week has brought about the realization of the Lord giving me the desires of my heart. I can't publish this quite yet, but I have been in a very contemplative mood today. I am still in shock that one of my MAJOR goals has been accomplished. It is just so SURREAL! I can't wait to go into the next phase of my life where I set the next goal or desire of my heart. Because I finally think I've figured out how to make this scripture heart knowledge. Maybe one day I'll figure out how to make it all heart knowledge. All I know is that I'm glad God has patience with me along the way. LOL!
Oh, and I'll be able to share the details of my dream realized on Tuesday so come back and check it out!
