Delight

eyes-218185_960_720We recently had guests for lunch and their youngest son was totally enamored with our black cat’s choice of sleeping/hiding places.  He (the cat) loves to be totally covered up under quilts, blankets, pillows…actually under anything.  We would pull back the throw, that the cat was sleeping under, and all he could see was two green eyes peering back and he would laugh that delighted two-year-old laugh.  I could hear God in that laugh and knew that He was once again giving me a personal glimpse of Him through a child’s delighted laugh.

For the Lord takes delight in His people

Psalm 149:4 tells us the LORD takes great delight in us.  He shows us how much He loves us in the many things around us.  Like a child’s delighted laugh, hummingbirds at the feeders, the shapes and colors of nature, people who model His many attributes, and so much more. Watch for the LORD’s delighted love.  It’s everywhere!

Heavenly Father, Creator of all this is was and ever will be, open my heart, mind and soul to Your delight.  Give me the supernatural ability so see You in all of Your Creation.  Make it so in Jesus name.

Blessings to you and yours!
