YOU make Him happy



"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." Revelation 4:11 KJV

When I read the above verse, I often think about the beautiful world He created; but, He also made ME, He made YOU, because He got pleasure out of it.

YOU make Him happy!

You, just as you are, not just the you that does everything right that day, the you the crossed off every to-do item off your list, who cooked a wonderful meal for your family and was kind and loving to everyone,

But, the you - or let's be honest, the me - that was cranky and skimped on her work so that she could read a novel and made the easiest meal she could think of so the family would eat quickly - and then she prayed they'd go to bed so they would LEAVE her alone ... He's happy with that you as well.

The truth is, He loves us on our worst days as well as our best.

Does that mean, then, we are free to do nothing and zone out the rest of our lives? Or, at least a day or two?

Child of God, we are put here for a purpose and we will never find true fulfillment until we find that purpose and dedicate ourselves to it.

But on those days you have trouble functioning at your optimum peak, remember this: YOU make Him happy.

I'm linking this post to #TellHisStory at JenniferDukesLee.com because His story is that He invited me to be a part of it - and I accepted. You can, too.

Thanks for this- it's such an encouragement to think that we make God happy on our worst days as well as our best.

What a gentle, oft' needed reminder ... it's not about us, it's about Him. Thanks, Jerralea ...

I recently read that God delights in our delight! That makes so much sense to me as I love to see our kids enjoying life!
