The truth is, you don't have to be perfect to delight in the Lord. You don't have to have it all together, or have the perfectly balanced life. For so long, I thought before I could move forward in certain areas of my life I needed to at least have a perfectly balanced life. But now I realize that isn't so. God will bless your efforts, and He will honor your humility. So when you feel like delighting in Him requires action from you to improve or be better at being a Christian, know this: God is strong wherever you are weak, and your actions for the Lord will not go in vain.
I will say it again: God will honor your humility. When our hearts are filled with pride, we remove our self from the presence of the Lord, but through humility we experience God in a whole new way, and that is when we finally know and experience what it means to delight in the Lord.
You do not have to be perfect, and the Desires of My Heart book is not about being perfect, it is about becoming - or moving - towards God and living a life delighted in Him, which will come when our heart has been changed by Him.
Desires of My Heart is a meditation based on Psalm 37:4. So many of us believers walk our Christian walk without really knowing what it means to delight in the Lord. In this book I answer that question "What does it mean to delight in the Lord?" Desires of My Heart is a powerful book that will help you work to get past any barriers you may have that is inhibiting your walk with the Lord, while also encouraging you to live a life guided by The Holy Spirit.
