Have you seen the movie Pride and Prejudice?
I watched it the other day...twice!
It's really good.
There is one particular scene (shown above)
when he says in his deep English accent...
"You must know, I did it all for you!"
I melted...right. off. my. chair.
And then I did that thing that we girls do...
I started thinking.
"The good doctor has never said that to me before!"
But before I could even complete that thought another thought crowded in... I hadn't exactly
batting my eyes at him like the cute Keira Knightley.
So I am going to let you into my brain today...
a scary place especially here recently!
God has whispered this in my ear the last few days...
"I did it all for you."
(although there was no English accent)
I stood crying in the kitchen today over a bag of groceries someone had brought me.
I added them to the leftover meal someone had provided the night before.
I couldn't help but ask God "Why?! Why do you love me?! You know the very depth of my
heart (and it ain't pretty!)"
I feel too terrible too love, too broken, too evil, too hurt too hideous!
And then I stop short realizing this is exactly how Gianna feels.
But His word says He delights in me!
So overwhelmed with admiration and a desire to please I dug into my Bible to find what
Lord! I was looking for stuff to do, things to check off the list.
But this is what I found...
He delights in "His people" Psalm 149:4, Isaiah 65:19
He delights in "the chosen One" Isaiah 42:1
Nothing for me to do to make Him delight in me more!
Which is good because that means He won't delight in me less when I am wretched!
And He isn't delighted with me; He delights in me.
His delight doesn't come and go like my emotions.
It's been there all along.
I only need to receive it!
