Finding Joy in the Word

Thank you for joining me in this blog adventure. It is a journey of “Finding Joy in God’s Word.”

“Your words were found, and I ate them, And Your word was to me the joy and rejoicing of my heart; For I am called by Your name, O Lord God of Hosts.” –Jeremiah 15:16 NKJV

For many years I have had a personal mission statement: “Excite others with a passion and joy for God’s Word and for a desire to live in holiness.” Coupled with this desire in life is a prayer to my Heavenly Father that I might be one who encourages others in their faith in our Lord Jesus Christ.

Therefore encourage one another and build one another up… (1 Thessalonians 5:11 ESV)

So in this journey my desire is to present God’s Holy Word as revealed in the Holy Scriptures in various ways such as lessons, nuggets, stories and poems to encourage your hearts and minds to focus on the Lord Jesus Christ, without Whom we have no hope or joy in life.

Consider this Bible Nugget:

“Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good; Blessed is the man who trusts in Him!” (Psalm 34:8 NKJV) “Your words were found, and I ate them, And Your word was to me the joy and rejoicing of my heart; For I am called by Your name, O LORD God of hosts.” (Jeremiah 15:16 NKJV) Yes, Lord, let me taste Your goodness in Your holy Word today.

Come journey with me in God’s Word as we look at treasures from that Word to find His joy through our life’s journey.

  1. It used to perplex me that people could read the scriptures and not realize the lessons to be learned there, or gain understanding of the Lord God. Then I learned the truths and wonders of the Bible are foreign to the readers unless they have the open heart to its truths provided by the Holy Spirit. Then one can perceive that all of the scriptures, or written Word,
    are there to reveal Christ, the Living Word.
    Obviously, Valerie, that has happened to you.

    1. Mary Jo, how true the Holy Spirit uses the written Word to reveal Christ, the Living Word to us! May our prayer be ever before our Lord to “open our eyes that we may behold wondrous things out of Your law.” (Psalm 119:18). Thank you for sharing!
