First off let me clarify, this is not a paid review. As a matter of fact the author of the e-book does not even know I have read the book yet. :) All of the thoughts posted here are my sincere thoughts of the book, and not in any way influenced, good or bad, by anyone else.

My friend over at Momma's Time had a new button on her side bar. This button caught my eye, so like any curious person, I clicked it. It led me to the website for Desires of My Heart, an e-book written by Heather Bixler. Knowing that Heather is a woman of great faith and that our mutual friend would not link to something that was not worth reading, I checked it out.

Because I am reading the Bible in 90 days, I do not have a lot of time to read. Unfortunately I am home with a sinus infection. Fortunately this has given me time to read. So, I picked up my Kindle and started reading.

Desires of My Heart is an ebook written by Heather Bixler based on Psalm 37:4:

Psalm 37:4
English Standard Version (ESV)
Delight yourself in the LORD,
and he will give you the desires of your heart.

Heather really made me think while reading this e-book. I found myself questioning my motives for so many things. Ironically, I even found myself questioning my motive for reading through the Bible in 90 days, rather reading at "my own pace."

You see, often times Christians do things they way they want to do them, and pray for what they really want. They do not slow down long enough to prayerfully consider what God wants us to do. This is painfully obvious in so many facets of my life at this moment.

I will not go into all the areas of my life that need work. That is not what the purpose of this post is about. I am going to tell you that Heather is a gifted writer and she had the input and "faith stories" of three women who share her vision and heart for God. While I only know one of these three women who shared their stories, they all three moved my heart strings and reminded me that there is so much more than what I want, and if I would just align my desires with God's desires for my life, I would live a much richer and fulfilling life than I have now. I may not have more money or more possessions, but I would be more content with the direction of my life. I might even find what I am looking for, and that would be who am I and where am I supposed to be headed at this point in my life.

I encourage you to prayerfully read this book. It could change your heart.

Desires of My Heart - Meditation on Psalm 37:4 by Heather Bixler is a heart-warming and inspiring eBook devotional based on Psalm 37:4, which says "Delight yourself in the LORD and he will give you the desires of your heart" (NIV).

Two things struck a chord with me ~ the discussion on brokenness and Debbie's Faith Story. We cannot delight ourselves in the Lord without being broken! I love Psalm 51:17, "The sacrifice you desire is a broken spirit. You will not reject a broken and repentant heart, O God" (NLT). And Debbie's testimony of supernatural provision by God in these challenging times is an encouragement for every one of us to delight ourselves in the Lord!

The author concludes by informing us that "through our delight in [God], He is glorified. And that is all that truly matters in this life." I couldn't agree more!

I recommend it! I will award it 5 stars out of 5.

It's revealing! I could finally understand what waiting in the Lord and delighting in Him really means. Something that helps us put our faith into practice on daily basis.

I needed to read this beautiful ebook. Since February I have had to have several emergency surgeries, and it has been very hard getting back to normal. I have been blessed greatly to read this book at this time which has helped me to delight in the Lord and not despair because recovery has been/still is fraught with so many hard things, possible bad thinking, confusion and just plain being so tired a lot of the time. Learnig to turn it all over to the Lord each day has turned this all around, and that advice, that truth was given me from this very easy read book that explains it all so well. Thank you!

I like how the author, Heather, brings insight and depth to the Scripture-Psalm 37:4. She shares "how to" delight yourself in the Lord. I also like how she honestly and openly shares her personal experiences and desires with you. This book helps you understand what it really means to delight yourself in the Lord.

"My mind says go, My heart says lead." The title of the first poem in Heather Bixler's Desires of my heart sets the tone beautifully. Life isn't about doing the right thing, but doing the right thing is about life lived free in the Lord. Similarly, desiring and reading God's word isn't about fulfilling some to-do list and looking for answers; it's the pulse of a heart tuned to God. This short book of meditations invites the reader to ponder the difference, with Bible references reinforcing the messages, and a nice progression from pride through humility to peace and freedom from fear.
Which desires of your heart compete with God? Wise lessons from the author's life and the lives of friends, thought-provoking questions, and well-explained insights into human weakness make this an interesting , practical read, tuned to the questions of a modern reader and the problems of modern life.
"It's not about what we want, it's about what God desires," says the author at the end of this book. Hopefully readers will share that view and enjoy seeing how it plays out.

Disclosure: I was lucky enough to buy this ebook when it was offered free.

Desires of my Heart is based on one of my all time favorite verses,Psalm 37:4. Heather teaches us
that delighting in the Lord comes when we allow God to work and change us within, not from an outward
"pattern of performance based religion." We need to become humble, lose our pride an self sufficiency and allow God to work in our hearts what He KNOWS our desires should be. If you wan to "delight in the Lord" then this is the book for you.
