Joy · the Word

a picture of joy…

He said it two days ago…
Mom… I’ve got to show you this video…


The word that came to mind as I smiled and watched…

JOY…!

This giant panda at the National Zoo in Washington DC…
is a picture of joy…
pure joy…

I haven’t been able to get it out of my mind…
and I watched it again today…
wondering… Where do I experience that kind of joy…?

Then it hit me…
this panda… rolling… rubbing… rolicking…
is a physical picture of the spiritual joy I feel…
spending time in His Word…
when He is so present… I can hardly stand it…

It’s the Word that forms the foundation of this blog…
of what happens here…

When your words came, I ate them;
they were my JOY and my heart’s delight,
for I bear your name, O Lord God Almighty.
Jeremiah 15:16
(emphasis added)
I pray you find joy in His Word…
the kind that makes you want to rub your Bible on your head…
wishing with all your might… you could just pour it right in you…
For those who bear His name… His character…
His Word… is… their… heart’s… delight…
