My children are all adults that have busy, full lives of their own. With that said our times together are not as often as I would like. I love each one of them so incredibly. They are unique, exciting and so full of love and life. I enjoy each of them tremendously. They are fun and bring so much pleasure to me.
I look forward to each time I hear from them. There’s such joy in a telephone call or a surprise visit from any one of them. A note in the mail or even a text message brings gladness to my heart because intimacy with my children brings me great joy.
I have been reminded that just like I enjoy hearing from and spending time with my children God Himself also delights in me!
Psalm 149:4 says, The Lord takes pleasure in His people.
God enjoys us! He wants to hear from us. He wants to spend time with us. He cares for us and about us. He desires an intimate relationship with each one of His children.
Be reminded of this and spend some time with Him. Be encouraged and read His word. Find a bible based church and attend regularly. Become part of a small group of people who also want to intimately know who Jesus Christ is. Pray and talk to God. He wants to hear from you, from us. He delights in us and we have joy in Him!
You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore. Psalm 16:11
