God’s delight:day 85-💯 days of JOY 

Standard

Every spring I post pictures of the first blooms to open up in my flower beds. I do this because my heart thrills to see these flowers. When I took this picture today, my joy struck me as gratitude and praise to God. It was then that I became aware of God’s joy when He sees us enjoying something He has made. 

It’s like when a parent sees their child playing with a favorite toy or enjoying their time with a friend or grinning from ear to ear as they ride a roller coaster. We parents smile and feel joy when our kids have those experiences and we sense that we are appreciated, that we did something well and made our kids happy in some way. This is a small comparison, but hopefully it can help paint a better picture of what I was trying to say

God delights in our joy , in our enjoyment of the life He has given us and all that encompasses. As I have quoted before, “the Glory of God is a human fully alive”(St. Iraneaus)
