Church was a blessing today, as it always is. Freedom....what a priceless heritage and won at what a cost. Freedom to worship God openly and without censorship. I am truly grateful. Its late so offline I go, I just wanted to say hello to you! Life has just been so busy here lately. Not much time for the blog, but I'll get caught up eventually.
"And the Jews had light, and gladness, and joy, and honor." The book of Esther, chapter 8 verse 16. I loved this wonderful statement when I read it in my devotions. That's how our hearts can be lifted and lightened when we come before the Lord. In the sermon tonight, when Nehemiah came before the King with his request, his face was sad. Ordinarily sad countenances were not tolerated before royalty according to the footnote in my Ryrie Study Bible, King James Version always. But the King granted his hearts desire, just the way our King grants our hearts desires, within his will. I want the light, and gladness, and joy, and honor that only living for Jesus will give me, and I have it for I have Him. Wishing you blessings!
