Webster defines delight as "a high degree of gratification" and then gives one of the synonyms as JOY.  This morning I read these verses from Psalm 119:35-37

Lead me in the path of your commandments,
    for I delight in it. 
  Incline my heart to your testimonies,
    and not to selfish gain! 
  Turn my eyes from looking at worthless things;
    and give me life in your ways.

I actually had to stop and chew on those for a while.  If I am delighting in Him (Psalm 37) then my delight is also found in His commandments - and I follow that path willingly.  I am turning my heart towards Him and not to my own selfish ways.  I am looking at things that are from Him and not on things that are worthless...

So the question that came to mind is- am I actually doing this?  Am I living my life in this manner?  Lots to think and ponder for a Tuesday morning...

Both delight and joy are wrapped up in Him. You will find them both as you seek Him. Well done oldest daughter. :)
