The Soul Strength of Delighting in God

Loving God…

and delighting in Him, medicine is the truest work of the soul.

Yet how often do we chase after delight and satisfaction in countless counterfeit pursuits?

John Piper states “He is the end of our search,  not the means to some other end”(Desiring God p. 24).

Here is a little soul talk for your weekend.

 

Psalm 34-1

 

Psalm 34-4

 

Psalm 34-8

  1. Beautiful encouragement. Thanks for sharing what the Lord has laid on your heart. Blessings!

  2. Thank you for sharing these powerful verses. The John Piper quote points out a distinction I haven’t really noticed before…happiness is found IN God, not FROM God. Good stuff!

      Yes, the Piper quote caught me too. How easy it is to seek happiness from God and His blessings rather than truly enjoying God.

  3. I love the photos and sweet reminder! God spoke right to my soul tonight through worship! He is sweet for sure!

      Blessings my friend. I’m thrilled you are being blessed. Thanks so much for sharing our transition experience with your 31 days series.

  4. AMEN! Have a blessed week my friend.

  5. So good to be back on line after almost 2 weeks! Catching up on all my fav blogs.

    The pictures are so sweet and I love the verses. John Piper’s quote hit home. I spend too much time seeking God’s blessings and too little time seeking Him.
