Rejoice and be Glad!

Take a journey with me…
It really was a little thing but the other day, on a walk, I came across a young bunny and it gave me a jolt of delight.  Immediately, Psalm 118:24 came to mind…This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.

And, then I started to think about all the other wonderful things in my life and especially how wonderful it is to have a relationship with Jesus…because of Him my life is full and vibrant…not without struggle mind you but full of HOPE and PEACE.

But then I thought to myself…self, that Bible verse is becoming a cliche for you…you say it all the time and haven’t looked at it in context in awhile…

So I read the whole psalm this morning and it’s a beautiful psalm…reminding me how wonderful, strong, righteous, steadfast and in control He is…

It’s a wonderful thing to start the day in the Word…it sets the tone for the day…so if you do nothing else today…either read Psalm 118 or something else in the Word…and then rejoice and be glad!

Blessings – DM+
