If you are anything like me there are probably times that you don't feel very delightful! In fact, I am going to go out on a limb and say that there may even be times that you don't act very delightful! LOL! Well, don't get too down on yourself. The bottom line is that we are all human. None of us do this thing called life perfectly.
Why is it that we find it so easy to believe that God can forgive us of our sins, but we somehow forget that He delights in us! We find it easy to trust Him for our salvation, but we somehow find it hard to believe that He will forgive us again when we slip up.
When our perspective is wrong and we believe that what God wants from us is merely a religious interaction, we get things mixed up. The key to seeing God and His true character is to remember that He is all about relationships. When we change our viewpoint, our perspective gets shifted back into alignment.
So how do we rest in the fact that our Lord delights in us. That He desires to get to know us, and more than that....He desires us to get to know Him. We need to spend time in God's Word learning His character. Psalm 149:4 says, "For the Lord takes delight in His people, He crowns the humble with victory." We can trust our God. We can rest assured that He is working on our behalf even when it doesn't feel like it. We can take Him at His Word and know that when He says that He delights in us.....that is the truth.
So as you go through your week, remember how much God loves you.....and take heart. We serve a good Father that delights in you!

|NOW WITH ALL NEW 3-D ARTWORK!|
Where should I begin? I am so excited that I had the opportunity to review The Beginner's Bible by Zonderkidz. Although my own children are older than six (6), all three of my kids were raised reading from The Beginner's Bible. In fact the first book that my oldest daughter learned to read from was the Beginner's Bible! So having the opportunity to review it with the all new 3-D artwork was a special treat for me!

I highly recommend The Beginner's Bible. This is a great gift idea for your children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews. You can be sure that it will be a welcomed addition to family devotions with your youngsters!

I was reading my devotion the other day , and it really resonated with me.
Has there ever been times when you felt that God had forgotten His promises to you? Rest assured that HE NEVER DOES!
No matter what amount of time has transpired without seeing His promise come to pass....rest assured that God is still working and moving. Think about the story of Joseph. He was sold into slavery and spent time in prison...but God knew what He was doing. And at just the right time, God raised him up to help save his family!
God's plan is always perfect and He knows what He's doing. So rest assured that God always has your best interest at heart!
So when things don't go exactly the way you expected, ask Him to speak to you and guide your path. He will teach you His ways and guide you in the way you should go!
