Happy November

On this Monday, the first of November, I wish you all the Lord's blessings on your day, your week and your month.  I pray you had a good weekend and spent time in the presence of the Lord.
Today as I opened up a devotional I read this verse and want to share it with you.

Today's treasure:  " Let no the wise man boast of his wisdom or the strong man boast of his strength or the rich man boast of his riches, but let him who boasts boast about this: that he understands and knows Me, that I am the Lord, who exercises kindness, justice and righteousness on earth, for in these I delight."
 Jer. 9:23-24

From my devotional "Jesus Calling" by Sarah Young~
"Do not be discouraged by the difficulty of keeping your focus on Me.  I know that your heart's desire is to be aware of My Presence continually.  This is a lofty goal; you aim toward it but never fully achieve it in this life.  Don't let feelings of failure weigh you down.  Instead, try to see yourself as I see you.  First of all, I am delighted by your deep desire to walk closely with Me through your life.  I am please each time you initiate communication with Me.  In addition, I notice the progress you have made since you first resolved to live in My Presence."
Dear ones, do you see how delighted the Lord is with us and how He sees our heart's desire for Him.  What a blessing to read this this morning.   May our boast be in His great love for us.
Hugs today,
