Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart. {Psalm 37:4} We’ve all made a Christmas list at some point in our lives. We think of what we want most and we write it down on a piece of paper.

Whether or not we realize it, we also have a list like that written in our hearts. We all have desires and longings that we want to be fulfilled. Sometimes the list in our hearts matches God’s list for our lives and other times it doesn’t.

What’s on God’s list? Good plans for us, blessings He wants us to receive and meaningful ways we can touch the world. They just may come in packages that look different than we imagined.

We may not always understand what God is doing but the closer we get to Him the more we want what He wants. We can trust God’s list for our lives is the best because He loves us so much.

What is on the list in your heart right now? What are your biggest hopes and desires for this coming year?
