Sabbath Bread {desire}

"Trust in the Lord and do good.
    Then you will live safely in the land and prosper.

Take delight in the Lord,

    and He will give you your heart’s desires.
 Commit everything you do to the Lord.
    Trust him, and he will help you.
 He will make your innocence radiate like the dawn,
    and the justice of your cause will shine like the noonday sun.
 Be still in the presence of the Lord,
    and wait patiently for him to act.
Don’t worry about evil people who prosper
    or fret about their wicked schemes."
                        -Psalm 37:3-7 (NLT) [emphasis mine]

Father - we are hungry for Your will, and our food is to do it. We wait for You to act, and choose not to worry when wickedness seems to prosper all around us. What we want most is what You want to give us, the desires of our hearts both planted and fulfilled by Your sovereign hand. Today once again we choose to trust You, doing the hard work trust requires - the hard work of opening our hands and releasing the control. Be it waves, flames, or river's current - we will brave it all with Your help that we may get to You.
