Day 7: Delight

delight: a strong feeling of happiness

: great pleasure or satisfaction

: a high degree of gratification

PRAY: Today, Lord, I receive with gratitude your rejoicing over me. I serve you in joy and desire to bring you delight through my thoughts and actions—and especially through the exercise of power that is the opportunity to vote in this election. I pray that in this election season and through this upcoming vote, you would shape America to be a nation of people who bring you delight.

Zephaniah 3:17

“The Lord your God is with you, the Mighty Warrior who saves. He will take great delight in you; in his love he will no longer rebuke you, but will rejoice over you with singing.”

Well loved! I have been blessed all my life to be surrounded by family and friends that nurtured, supported and loved me into the person that I have become. That love has sustained me throughout whatever circumstance I have found in life. It is the greatest gift that one can give and the essential ingredient to living life with no regrets. I reached this conclusion while lying in a hospital bed on life support for 70 days. Under those circumstances I dealt with the essential ingredients of my life. What was important? Why was I alive? What did my life mean?
