Joy in the Morning!
Good morning, people!! I am so excited to be sitting here, eating breakfast and writing for the first time in a long time! Last night I did a happy dance in my kitchen as I sang, “No more pencils, no more books! No more teacher’s dirty looks! Come on, children! Scream and shout! It’s time to let the monkeys out!”
Now I love school and I am incredibly excited about the excellent education that I am receiving, but that doesn’t prevent me from being incredibly excited that I have four weeks to do what I want to do and read what I want to read. Beginning the complete works of Josephus, that ancient Jewish historian, is the first thing on my plate. I am so excited!
As I come back to blogging, I have decided to switch it up and begin blogging in the morning instead of at night. I hope to have my daily posts mostly reflect encouraging biblical truths – the kinds of things that make you want to jump up and down with happiness. Well, they make me want to jump up and down anyway.
May God bless you with His incredible goodness today. He delights in giving good things to His children! And as He has promised, He will give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him.
“So I say to you: Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened. “Which of you fathers, if your son asks for a fish, will give him a snake instead? Or if he asks for an egg, will give him a scorpion? If you then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!” Luke 11:9-13
Ask away! God will give you the amazing gift of His Spirit. All you need to do is ask! And if you already have Him and His Spirit in you, celebrate that like children, we get to keep going to God and begging, “More! More! More of Your Spirit!”
He will never say “no” to that request!by
