Tuesday Truths

For those who may have missed my post yesterday and are interested in my book giveaway-you can enter through Thursday.  I will joyously announce the winner Friday morning.  You can enter as many times as you like.

I am just finishing Ann Voskamp's book One Thousand Gifts and I have been challenged again and again to journal blessings throughout the day.  I did find that if my journal is out of sight I didn't take notice as much, so this morning it is out again as a reminder to stop and partake of all He has given. 
In my devotional today, there is a verse that I will share at the end of this post, that I think I need to continually dwell on.
From 3/15 Sarah Young writes: "Listen to the love song that I am continually singing to you.  I take great delight in you...I rejoice over you with singing.  The voices of the world are a cacophony of chaos, pulling you this way and that. Don't listen to those voices; challenge them with My Word.  Learn to take minibreaks from the world, finding a place to be still in My Presence and listen to My voice.
There is immense hidden treasure to be found through listening to Me.  Though I pour out blessings upon you always, some of My richest blessings have to be actively sought.  I love to reveal Myself to you, and your seeking heart opens you up to receive more of My disclosure.  Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you."
Did you catch the verse from Zephaniah 3:17-read it again to yourself.
"The Lord your God is in your midst,  A victorious warrior. He will exult over you with joy.  He will be quiet in His love, He will rejoice over you with shouts of joy." NASV.
"I will take great delight in you.  I rejoice over you with singing."NIV
"He will take delight in you with gladness. With His love, He will calm all your fears.  He will rejoice over you with joyful songs".- One Thousand Gifts.
Did you hear this?  He will rejoice over you with joy.  I always use either NASV or KJV but whatever version you read, claim this verse today and walk as a daughter of the King.
Blessings, Noreen

  1. I <3 your post today my friend...and I <3 your heart as well.

    This truly is one of my favorite passages of scripture:
    The Lord your God is in your midst, A victorious warrior. He will exult over you with joy. He will be quiet in His love, He will rejoice over you with shouts of joy." NASV.

    I'm so thankful that he IS in the midst of everything that happens in my day.

    Blessings,

  2. I love that Zeph. verse. It is our choice where to gaze...the One who sits on the throne or the circumstances of this world. Abide well today my friend...rest in Him.

  3. Sweet blessings to you today.

    Not to be big headed, but humbled and lifted up to a gracious level...thinking about being a daughter of the most high God is such a sweet and dignified honor.

    May this truth go deep into our spirits so we know who and whose we are!

    Enjoyed this post.
    God bless,
