the best way to delight

Turning the calendar page yesterday to the new month of June brought with it these words:

"Take delight in the LORD, and He will give you the desires of your heart." ~ Psalm 37:4

It comes from one of my favorite chapters in the book of Psalms - a chapter filled with imperative sentences (commands) with strong verbs (actions).  

I tend to think if we are only delighting in the Lord without putting all those other verbs into action, perhaps the desires of our heart :::whispering::: aren't really the best things for us.  

Are we trusting?  Fretting not?  Committing?  Refraining? Waiting?  Being still?  Turning away?  Living meekly? Stepping where the Lord is establishing the way?  Grabbing the Lord's hand when we fall? (only to mention a few of the verbs found in this particular psalm)

For when we are fully committing our life to the Lord, there is more delight to be found and suddenly His desires for our life are our desires for our life.  After all, He made us, knows every single thing about us, and knows what desires will truly truly delight us deep down in our hearts.  And when THAT happens, we delight in Him even more!
