Looking to His Future

Today I'm linking up with the Gypsy Mama for Five Minute Friday. Here, we write for five minutes, non stop, no editing.
Today's word is: Delight.
Ready? Set? Write!

"Surely I have a delightful inheritance." Isn't that wonderful? That verse is the first thing I think of when I hear the word "delight." That leads me to think "store up treasures in heaven." 
Sometimes when I think of heaven and the future, I feel so very small. But when I read that verse, I get giddy inside; I have a God who loves me and is waiting for me! I'm a child of His! How delightful, truly! 

He delights in me. I am His. 

True joy comes from Him; I find I am at my happiest in life when I am focused on Him and praising Him. Thankfulness truly brings joy and delight. I can say this from experience, and cannot wait to learn more about this. 

And I delight in the Lord. He brings me peace and healing. 

But this year specifically? He brings me hope. I am trusting in Him, that He has my future written, and I can hope for my dreams. 

To God be the glory!


What does the word "delight" mean for you?


  1. Beautiful words, dear! Keep looking for gifts! <3

  2. Beautiful! (found you through the blog hop)

  3. This is wonderful. I thought of a verse, too, but a different one. (Psalm 37:4, if you wanted to check it out.)

    It is so wonderful to belong to Him and to have His love showered upon us.
