His delights

Isn't it fun to make a list of the things we love and enjoy?

Hot showers
Sunshine on the ocean
Pecan pie

I could go on and on.  If you haven't done it in a while, you should try.  Make a list of the things that bring you joy - the things that you are grateful for. Whenever I am grumpy or feeling negative, this little practice is a sure way to help me out of the pit.  Sometimes, I wonder what it is that God loves and enjoys.  I did a quick search through my Bible and this is what I found:

* "he taketh pleasure in them that fear him." Psalm 147:11

* "the prayer of the upright is his delight." Psalm 35:27

* "he taketh pleasure in his people." Psalm 149:4

* "the upright in their way are his delight." Prov 11:20

* He has written a book of remembrance for "them that feared the Lord and thought upon his name." Mal 3:16

* What is very valuable to him?  Jewels? Knowledge? "the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price." 1Peter 3:4

* "I (wisdom) was daily his delight." Prov 8:30

* "A just weight is his delight" Prov 11:1

* "they that deal truly are his delight" Prov 12:22

* A dove descended upon Jesus and there was a voice heard from heaven "This is my Beloved Son in whom I am well pleased." Mat 3:17

* A thick cloud overshadowed the others and only Jesus was left."This is my Beloved Son in whom I am well pleased." Mat 17:5

* "they that are in the flesh cannot please God." Romans 8:8

* "without faith, it is impossible to please God." Hebrews 11:6
