Our Heart’s Desire

hearts desire

When our ways please God, He gives us the very desire of our heart.  Ps.37:4

I’m remembering a challenging time of my life, I had gone through a divorce and was experiencing  difficult times at work.  On a Saturday afternoon I decided to visit a mega church which was quite a ways from my home.  I had no idea of what to expect as this was my first visit.  While on my long drive over, I was hoping for a rewarding worship experience with people I had never met before.  Specifically, I was hoping to meet someone who would tell me all about the ministry.  I arrived early and didn’t have a clue of where to go, as this church was very large, with so many meeting rooms too many to remember.  There was this hallway and that hallway, one led to various meeting rooms and another led to others.  As I ventured through this beautiful edifice, I bumped into a kind man.  He greeted me with a smile, then said hello and asked me my name.  I replied then told him it was my first time there and I didn’t know where to go for the worship service.

He then introduced himself as the pastor and proceeded to tell me all about the ministry while taking me on a detailed tour of the building.  He took me to each office and meeting room explaining their function; he took me to meet the co-pastors then to a Volunteer Dinner that was in session and invited me to take part.  He introduced me to a group of people whom he asked to sit with me during the worship service.  After the service, the pastor followed up with me to ensure that the overall worship experience was pleasing, and need I say, it was just what the doctor ordered!  It was everything I had hoped it to be.  Our heavenly Father is faithful in meeting us just where we are; it doesn’t matter how large or small the desire, He is capable of fulfilling every detail.  He even goes a step further by exceeding our expectations!


Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.  Ephesians 3:20,21
