Delight

Max Lucado writes about Delight. We all have our own definition of “delight” but I like his in-depth version.

“Delight is the Bethlehem shepherds dancing a jig outside a cave. Delight is Mary watching God sleep in a feeding trough. Delight is Joseph teaching the Creator of the world how to hold a hammer. Delight is a widow hosting a party with food made for a funeral. Delight is Jesus doing impossible things in crazy ways: healing the blind with spit, paying taxes with coins found in a fish’s mouth, & coming back from the dead disguised as a gardener. Delight is the surprise on the faces of street folks who have been invited the a king’s banquet. (I might add, that’s us – it’s waiting for us) Delight is the adultress walking out of the stone-cluttered courtyard alive, a scantily clad Peter plunging into cold waters to get close to the one he’d cursed. Delight is a father scrubbing the pig-pen smell off his son’s back.”

SACRED delight is good news coming thru the back door of your heart! What you had always dreamed but never expected – too good to be true coming true! I love HIM…
