Monday Meditation~Delight-full!

"I delight greatly in the LORD; my soul rejoices in my God." Isaiah 61:10a (NIV)


That's how I feel this morning!

Full of delight in His presence.

It began with my quiet time, as I read, "Blessed are those who have learned to acclaim You, who walk in the light of Your presence, O LORD. They rejoice in Your name all day long; they exult in Your righteousness." Psalm 89:15-16 (NIV)

Oh, friend, I want to acclaim Him! Acclaim means to welcome with sounds of shouts of joy! 

You know that song that says, "I just want to shout Hallelujah, thank You Jesus. Lord, You're worthy of all the glory and of all the honor and all the praise." Are you shoutin' with me?

I desire to walk in the light of His presence!

I long to rejoice in His name all day long!

This morning, the awe of His greatness enveloped me.

Joy so overwhelming flooded my soul...beckoning me to lift my hands and twirl (yes, right in the front yard) engulfed in His sweet company.

Worship time (in my car with Kari Jobe) led me to greater heights, completely overtaken by His majesty, His presence, His abounding love.

Um-hmm, I'm full of delight in the LORD!

How has He delighted you today?

Lord, draw us into the light of Your presence. Fill us to overflowing with Your love so that we can't help but shout in acclamation of Your great Name! Flood our hearts, souls, and minds with the assurance of Your love for us that knows no bounds. We rejoice in that love. May our love to You and to those around us reflect the magnitude of Your own.
