Reading All The Words

“And the king went up to the house of the LORD with all the men of Judah, and with him all the inhabitants of Jerusalem – the priests and the  prophets and all the people, both small and great; and he read it in their hearing all the words of the Book of the Covenant which had been found in the house of the LORD.”  2 Kings 23:2

How blessed I am to be able to hold His word in my own hands, read it with my eyes and hear it as often as I’d like.

Oh Lord, please help us continue to get Your word out to others.  And here is a simple poem . . .

Send It Out

Could I remember Your word    
if only once I’d heard it
unable to hold it in my hands
and read it for myself
to turn the pages
and say it out loud
or send it forth
into the hands of others
waiting to touch, to see
to taste how good it is.

  1. Oh this is so good and lovely, Sis! And you even have a pretty picture tonight!! I’m so glad we can read His Word as often as we want, since I doubt my leaky brain could remember what I try to hide in my heart. Thank you, Sis–have a much-blessed and covered day tomorrow. My prayers go with you! love you, Caddo

  2. Deb,

    Thanks for a GREAT posting… how often do we think to thank Him for His word? Speking for myself … rarely, and I say that to my shame.
    It is one of the greatest blessings (next to salvation) that we have received from Him. It is just as you say… what would we do without it?

    Thanks for your faithfulness to HIm!

  3. “…How blessed I am to be able to hold His word in my own hands…”

    If you have read, God’s Smuggler,” by Brother Andrew, then you realize just how blessed we are to have Bibles.

  4. Sis Caddo Delight . .. that is me exactly . . .ol’ leaky brain herself. 🙂 I thought of everyone gathering and listening while he read it . .. and well, that would be quite a bit of info to take in. At least for me! I need to read over and over again. God bless you, precious one and thank you for your love and prayers! They saved the day!

  5. What a treasure to have His Word . . .you are so right, Rob! I want to make sure that I appreciate and use the blessing He has given me, reading it each day. 🙂 God bless you and your love for His Word!

  6. So true Larry! I don’t want to take it lightly, the blessing we have and I desire to help others have His word too. I haven’t read God’s Smuggler, but I hope to one day. I need longer days . . .not getting to read too much lately! 🙂
    God bless you and your desire for His word.

  7. Today’s poem makes me think and wonder, how do you read your Bible? Do you go chapter to chapter or by themes? Sometimes I hit a wall and put it to the side. Your message is clear… what do you recommend to stay with it?

  8. Oh lovely Linda, I feel quite inadequate as to tell you how to read your bible!!! I think you must be doing just fine. 🙂 This is how I do it, but it’s just me, what helps me. I read a book entirely in the Old Testament, and then go to the New Testament and read a book entirely through. And just keep alternating that way. I do read a chapter a day, try to, and try to draw a devotion/poem out of each chapter. And I just go in the order they are in the Bible, not a chronological order.
    A funny thing is that I thought He told me maybe 5 or so years ago, or more, that He wanted me to do poems from His word, like every paragraph? Well, that just wasn’t happening. I kind of forgot about it. Then this sort of developed and I guess He’s just gonna help me get through the entire Bible like this. Not sure what I’ll do after that though!
    God bless you and your time with Him. Your life reflects Him and His word.

  9. Love it Deb – so blessed to be able to both read and hear the Word. The Psalms talk about our tongue being the pen that writes on the tablet of our heart – I do find when I read aloud or listen to the Word that it seems to awaken me (might just be the season I’m in but some mornings my eyes blur and I realise I haven’t actually taken in a word!). We truly are blessed to have such freedom to be in His Word. Bless you for sharing your journey through His Word.

    P.S. Loving all the pics 🙂

  10. Thank you, Dearest Delightful Deb

    “Dear Lord no one on Earth can help me with this issue. It’s just You and me now Lord”
    There is so much we take for granted that others are dying to experience.

    Privileged and thankful

  11. “Not sure what I’ll do after that though!”

    Do it again…please, please! …well, if that is what the Lord directs you to do. I love the word and I love your blog!

  12. This is for you, Deb.

    Love,
    Theresa

    I Love to Tell The Story

    I love to tell the story of unseen things above,
    Of Jesus and His glory, of Jesus and His love.
    I love to tell the story, because I know ’tis true;
    It satisfies my longings as nothing else can do.

    Refrain

    I love to tell the story, ’twill be my theme in glory,
    To tell the old, old story of Jesus and His love.

    I love to tell the story; more wonderful it seems
    Than all the golden fancies of all our golden dreams.
    I love to tell the story, it did so much for me;
    And that is just the reason I tell it now to thee.

    Refrain

    I love to tell the story; ’tis pleasant to repeat
    What seems, each time I tell it, more wonderfully sweet.
    I love to tell the story, for some have never heard
    The message of salvation from God’s own holy Word.

    Refrain

    I love to tell the story, for those who know it best
    Seem hungering and thirsting to hear it like the rest.
    And when, in scenes of glory, I sing the new, new song,
    ’Twill be the old, old story that I have loved so long.

    Refrain

  13. I know that you love and are so grateful for having His Word, Ann full of grace! Thank you for helping put it into the hands of others too! God bless you and speak to you today!

  14. Oh Wonderful woman of the Word! Thank you so much for the gift you are and this gift you brought! 😀 This gives me goosebumps. God bless you as you read and share His word today!
    love and prayers!

  15. Sweet Aimee, that is a really wonderful truth you shared, about how hearing it aloud even when we can just read it to ourselves, can make a difference. 🙂 I’m going to start putting that into practice more. God bless you and all He awakens in you today!
    p.s. the pics are pretty simple, like the poems. I just had trouble finding ones and it was taking too much time, so I thought I’d try doing my own. No need to ask permission to use those. 🙂 But, some posts may have to be pictureless if I just can’t come up with anything around the house. haha!
    love and prayers . . .so glad to have you back! (selfish me!)

  16. 🙂 Love you, Theresa! It’s going to take me awhile yet . .. haha!

  17. Good to be back – have had a crazy week preparing for our 40 Hrs so really looking forward to getting back into my daily reading again 🙂 Bless you heaps Debbie xx

  18. I am often asked what I consider to be the greatest blessing of being a Christian, and my mind just gallops along with one thing after another. I think of the enormous blessing of having the REALITY of the presence of the Creator God, my loving heavenly Father, ALL the time, non-stop. Amazing! I think of the enormity of the sacrifice made on my behalf and I am speechless. I think of the CHANGE in my life. I think of the privilege of being a child of the living God. I think of the cleansing I have received and continue to receive, so that I can enter His presence. I think of all the resources of Heaven that are available to me to enable me to live victoriously.

    My mind races along . . . counting the uncountable blessings . . . but somewhere in that list (don’t ask me where, but somewhere near the top) is the availability of God’s Word – the living Word – and the effect it has on me and my life.

    How privileged we are to have His Word so readily available! When we experience the reality of its power, we MUST realise the responsibility we have to make it known to others.

    Debbie, once again you have said in just a few words what it has taken me forever to explain – and still haven’t said. Thank you for being you and for being a mouthpiece of our great Father God.

    We serve an amazing God!

  19. I love all the blessings that you are so thankful for, sweet Mentor Angela, and your joy and excitement for them all. I get the feeling that you could go on for awhile, because you realize your blessings are vast and deep! God bless you as you love His word and don’t count it a small thing that He has given it to you!!! love and prayers!
