When I was 7 years old I was born again! Five years later, the Lord filled me with His Holy Spirit and called me out to serve in full time service in the ministry. My heart is missions and a longing to love people into God's Kingdom.
I love to teach God's Word, pray with people and write. 
Soon, we are hoping our Jesus opens amazing doors to walk into mission endeavors.

“And for Thy Pleasure…”

Take joy oh my heart, God has desired us! We are HIS desire, created by Him to bring great satisfaction to Himself.
Ahhh, doesn’t that make you feel so good? Even secure, knowing we are not a mistake; or just something else that is living on this earth.
It clearly states in Revelation 4:11: “Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.” (KJV)
The original greek term for Pleasure is Thelma; meaning ‘will’. In this God was filled with determination and purpose to create everything and everyone!
This passage is one of my children’s many memory verses. They quote this everyday and for some reason they forget to say “and for His Pleasure…” . I don’t know why, but I hound it in them each time. Today, it pricked my heart. The word pleasure, it just popped out and spoke to me so clearly. My God does take pleasure in ME. Silly, stupid, old me! I have a purpose! Guess what? You have a purpose, my kids learning this verse, everyone  God has carefully chosen and desired to live a life in Him and through Him has a purpose.
Yet, why can’t He hear us sing praises all day long. Returning to Him the thanks due? In
Col. 1:16, 17 it says; “All things were created by him and for him, and he is before all things, and by him all things consist.” So, that is why we hear the birds sing all day, why animals don’t look like they are in a panic like we humans. I watch my Labrador through out the day, she just lounges out in the sunshine and enjoys her little life.
Revelations 4:11 starts off with “Thou art worthy, O Lord to receive glory, honor and power…”. Isn’t He ever!
He created it all, everything and everyone! Even the past and the present and yes the future.
Know this today: YOU ARE HIS DESIRE, HIS WILL, HIS PLEASURE! So, in turn tell Him: “Lord, I give You all the Glory, Honor and Power and Praise!” Just love Him today, show Him by how you live a joyful life of worship in each moment that comes your way.  THOU ART WORTHY the song.
