While so undeserving, God has fulfilled so many of the desires of my heart. To marry my best friend; to live near the beach; to do something I love, to visit faraway places, to live a life of adventure….. And being the extravagant giver He is, He has gone above and beyond. To give you a glimpse at how God does this, He just made my girlhood dream come true – to swim with a dolphin in the wild! For over an hour I swam, played and laughed with a wild dolphin named Moko off the coast of New Zealand! As Moko and I played hide and seek, catch the seaweed-ball and tackled the waves together I giggled with a “perma-smile” stretched across my face knowing that while God didn’t have to give me this gift, He did anyway!
I believe something amazing happens when our delight is in the Lord and not the things of this world….let us pursue Him with all our heart!
