The precepts of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart. Psalm 19:9 NASB
Psalm 19 ~ a psalm of God’s glory that speaks to the awesome reverence that comes as a result of knowing who God is: our rock and our redeemer, and what He does, more to the point, what His word does in our lives: restores our soul, makes us wise, rejoices our heart.
Nothing rejoices my heart more than getting into God’s word. Except maybe seeing other women get into God’s word. And when that Word touches women’s hearts and lives … well, that’s really worth rejoicing over.
The thing is ~ sometimes God’s word takes us to a place that doesn’t feel like rejoicing. Instead of awesome reverence it feels convicting, compelling, maybe even confusing. At Rejoicing Our Hearts we seek to cut through our troubling emotions that relate to Scripture and hope to encourage, equip and empower women through the word, to live authentic lives of faith and walk as God’s set-apart women, lights in a darkened world.
But if you really want to know how we feel about Scripture at Rejoicing Our Hearts, you might want to listen to this compelling song, Speak, O Lord, by modern hymn writers, Keith and Kristyn Getty. If you enjoy it you can get a free MP3 download of the song here.
May this song be our prayer each time we open His Word.
Rejoicing with you,
