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.

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.

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!

Desires of My Heart - Meditation on Psalm 37:4, written by Heather Bixler, touched home for me in a lot of ways. I felt as I was reading through the pages of this book that it was written just for me. The author is very down to earth, inspired by the Holy Spirit, and talked about real-life issues - situations I can relate to. Due to the things going on in my life currently, I read this book at the right time.

One of the reasons I wanted to read this book is because I have Psalm 37:4 stenciled on one of the walls in my home where I see it every day. Until reading this book, I didn't fully understand what delighting myself in the Lord actually meant. Now I know that freedom comes from total and complete submission to God and His will for my life, even when that hurts. Trusting in God requires submitting to Him and is more rewarding than living a life that relies on my own understanding, doubts and fears.

This book challenged me to become broken and let go of control in order to trust God on a deeper level. Heather emphasizes how living for God should be our motivation - not pride, not fear, not wants, needs or wishes. She also stresses that letting go of fear in lieu of clinging to faith helps me unite my heart with God and become one with Him. Being obedient is how I delight myself in the Lord.

Heather shares openly and honestly about some of her personal experiences and why this verse is important to her too. I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for some encouragement in their everyday life. I will be reading it over and over again. 5 stars all around.

Please note: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

"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.
