Day 9: What Makes God Smile?

Posted on May 1st, 2004

Ahh the focus is finally away from me!! Well, at least, it sort of is. Rick writes about the things that brings God pleasure, and it’s pretty broad: every action except sin. I guess I would have expected as much, seeing how sin is the act of evil. He spent quite a bit of time writing about Noah and showing how he did everything to please God. And God loved Noah for his obedience and love. Like it was intended to be, God’s love was reciprocated.

Accoding to Rick, these are the things that make God smile:
1. When we love him supremely.
2. When we trust him completely.
3. When we obey him wholeheartedly.
4. When we praise and thank him continually.
5. When we use our abilities.

Question to Consider: Since God knows what is best, in what areas of my life do I need to trust him most?

I think that I knew the answer to this question for quite a long time… it has to do with my direction in life; I have been disappointed with Software Engineering for quite some time, but I did not know where else I should go. People around me have encouraged me to transfer, but I was reluctant. Possibly lazy, as well. I told Sarah that I feel like I’m just floating through life — aimless and without direction.. well, direction in this life (hopefully, I am orienting myself towards God!!). I have no career aspirations, no educational goals.. nothing. I don’t know how to apply myself. I should trust God to provide me with direction, a renewed purpose, and the conviction that I need to get there.
