Today’s Tasting – Psalms 43-45, 49, 84-85 and 87: There is so much in reading today’s Psalms. So many different feelings and so many different situations, the more I read, the more I thought of things to write about. Then, I read the last verse in chapter 87: “All my springs of joy are in YOU”.
Today’s Nourishment: As women, we can get so caught up in so many good things; caring for our families, our homes, working, even our church. Our To Do list is never ending. Let us not forget that everything comes in second after God. God is the source of our joy.
A spring just bubbles up, it can’t be stopped, and not something that strives to bubble. Are you striving in your day to day? I admit that I have been striving. Those are the days I have to step back and think, where is my strength, where is my joy? Am I allowing God first place in my life or have I allowed all His blessings to actually push Him out of His rightful place – King of my heart.
What steals your “feeling” of His joy? Surrender to Him. Listen to His voice. Read His Word. Praise His Name. Jesus said, “Come to me.”
Count it all joy….
I don’t’ have to cook dinner for my family tonight, I am blessed with a family and “get to” cook them dinner.
I don’t have to go to the grocery store and prepare for tomorrow’s party, I “get to.”
I don’t have to read my Bible and pray, I “get to.”
I don’t have to get out of bed one more day, I “get to.”
Share some of your “get to’s” that cause springs of joy to bubble, when you really think about it, with us in the comment section below.

I “get to” join with other women in writing the posts for The Bible Feast Blog and I “get to” read the various perspectives and insights from the twelve women writing the blog posts. And, they are so good. I love reading the Bible this way. I “get to” rejoice today in the fact that my name is written in the Lamb’s Book of life!

I don’t have to go to church and worship and sing to my Savior, ” I get to”. I don’t have to cook a meal or clean a house for someone in need, “I get to”. I’m so thankful for the blessings in my life especially that “I get to” have mercy and grace!!!
