As He Delights in Me

This morning I was reading in Deuteronomy….It’s not like I never read it before but this morning as I read…. Seeking something to renew me. Something to refresh me in this season in which I feel so very tired, so worn.


Sometimes things just jump off the page at you. You see it, as though for the first time.
There is clarity, perhaps revelation as well. Some thing made new. God is in the business of making things new right? 🙂


Slowly, I read words I have seen time and time again:


 “…ye shall rejoice in all that ye put your hand unto, ye and your households, wherein the Lord thy God hath blessed shall rejoice in all that ye put your hand unto, ye and your households, wherein the Lord thy God hath blessed thee.”


Ye shall rejoice.


It isn’t a question. It isn’t a suggestion. It is a simple command.


Ye SHALL rejoice in ALL that we do.


Because it is in all that He has blessed me.




These days are not what I hoped they would be. Sassy mouths, tattling and tantrums; a house that we long ago outgrew even as our family keeps on growing. 😛


I am struggling with minimizing yet it seems no matter how much stuff we clean out, there is still even more to sort and store and organize.


So much noise; so many things making it harder to hear that still, small voice.

Lately how I just long to get away.


I remind myself that He is my hiding place. My refuge and my peace.


This world is not. Nor is my husband. And my children sure aren’t either. LOL


There is power in knowing that He is my portion; He is my joy.

It is said the joy of the Lord is our strength.

Can we not always have that joy if we are simply willing to be joyful?


To pray always.


To give thanks (for the mess, for the noise, even for what we believe we lack)


Just give thanks! 😀



When we simply obey His command to REJOICE in all things, for all things are blessings (whether we recognize them as such or not) there is rest. There is peace.






What do my eyes really see? Can they see beyond what is right now? Right here? Instead of seeing the natural can they look up, to the supernatural? To that Kingdom which is to come?



My ears…What do they hear? Do they hear commands? Do they hear fights and complaints? Or do they hear opportunities to teach and guide? Chances to pray for hearts and minds to soften and turn.



I am not my children’s Holy Spirit, I do not have the power to change their hearts. Only God can do this.


I am a God loving and fearing Apostolic Pentecostal - All about Holiness, a tongue Talking Homeschooling Mommy of Two AWESOME little men and two darling little ladies, with a precious one in Jesus arms too. I love to study His word, and the stories and histories that go along with it. Seeking truth at all expense and learning so much as we go along. We are truly blessed to homeschool - blessed that we may school our children for such a small cost. I believe in the power of the name of Jesus and the power of His people when they come together in prayer. Standing firm and speaking out! There is nothing that I seek more than His kingdom and the joys that follow Him! Ultra conservative, growing Jesus follower, mommy to two awesome boys, one precious little girl- with a great family and a wonderful life that I am so blessed to have! Living and loving as best I can, with the Lord-Holy Ghost filled and speaking in tongues-WOW!
