The People Who Know

“Blessed are the people who know
the joyful sound!
They walk, O LORD, in the light of
Your countenance.
In Your name they rejoice all day long . . .”  Psalms 89:15-16

People of God hear, walk and speak differently.

Lord, we thank You for the joy and the light of Your countenance and name!  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Blessed Ones

They can hear their Lord singing
over them with delight

and walk in the joy
of His Holy might

all through the day
they can’t help but rejoice

in the beauty of His name
and at the sound of His voice.


  1. Definitely another one that I love, so beautiful, Sis Deb! God bless you with a Fabuloso Fridady–love, sis Caddo

  2. How thankful I am that Christian’s live lives that are different from the lost world around us. The love, joy and peace that they have makes them a pleasure to associate with. My heart goes out to those Christians who, due to unconfessed sin, have lost their joy and peace.

    Lord bless you Debbie. Thank you for all the time you invest in sharing Christ with others in this blog and the other aspects of your life.

  3. Great poem and great photo. There’s nothing better than watching a young child playing and enjoying himself. These are the ones Jesus said would be the greatest in the Kingdom.

    Have a great day, but you might want to cancel your outing in Boston this weekend. Maybe delay it until opening day for the Red Sox in April, okay?

  4. People of God hear, speak and walk differently. That is it in a nutshell. Not weird different but just different.

  5. Wonderful, Debbie – the thoughts of your pure, Spirit-filled mind!

  6. What a great direction to move in – to unload our baggage enough to hear this voice, to experience this God, to know Him intimately as a great surpassing joy! I’m not there yet – but finally have the right thirst!

  7. Thank you for sharing, Dearest-Deb!

    Nothing like the joy that comes from knowing our Father!!

    Wonderfully beautiful piece 🙂 I will be running around in catch-up mode humming “I’ve got the joy, joy, joy, joy down in my heart!” 🙂


  8. Dearest Deb –
    This poem made me think of our Aub who sees what I miss and hears what I don’t hear.
    I’m trying very hard to never murder another moth.
    Thinking of the Lord singing over me – what a joyous thought! 😀

  9. Amen Deb, all we want to do is share the joy we have found! Blessings and sharing of the joy you experience!

  10. Amen! Precious post! I had images of children dancing around the Lord! Glory!
    God Bless you, Deb!

  11. Thank you so much,Sis Caddo , for your blessings and love! Love you too, and God bless you and keep you oh so close to that joyful sound!

  12. Thank you for this wonderful encouragement that we are a pleasure to be with .. .or should be! 🙂 God bless you, Pastor Rob!

  13. Thank you and God bless you, Mr. Larry! I love seeing Him in the children. I heard a story about Aub that I hadn’t known about before. We tried cleaning for the lady’s daughter that we’ve cleaned for , for a long time. It didn’t end up working, but she told us that her daughter remembered when she was so sick and suffering from a combination of things, that Aubrey told her, “He said you would be okay.” She asked Aub who said that, and Aub told her , “that man over there.”. There was no man over there, so she assumed that Aubrey must have seen an angel. 🙂

    I am taking your advice and staying put for now!

  14. I love how you put that, Pastor Bill .. .not weird but different! 🙂 Thank you and God bless you!

  15. Oh . .that was really a sweet thing to say, Maria! Thank you for blessing me .. .God bless you bunches!
    p.s. I am LOVING your book!

  16. You are doing wonderful, Melody! I am reading joyful, hopeful poems from you each day . .. God bless you!

  17. Love you, Ann full of grace and song! And now I’m humming that sweet song too! 🙂 God bless you and yours this weekend!

  18. Moths are kind of fragile . ..sometimes they just accidentally mush. 🙂 I just know He is singing over you, gracious friend .. .I think I hear Him from here . And He seems to have taken charge of who you will be working with too! Happy happy joy joy! God bless you!

  19. It’s hard to contain that joy! Thanks Tom and God bless you! Your affirmations have been blessing me big time!

  20. I love that image that came to you, Lady Dei! I can see Lili doing some of that dancing! God bless you and yours!

  21. Nice picture and poem! It’s the most precious thing in the world to know the maker of heaven& earth! What a joy!

  22. I just read my comment and am cracking up at “Fridady”–too delirious! That’ll teach me to criticize others for not proofreading!!!

  23. Thank you for reading it!

  24. I loved this Deb. I am working to be one of those people.

  25. Deb,

    The people of God are a “peculiar” people in many ways. Your post bringa to mind the title God’s Word gives to Christians… New Creatures In Christ… the old is passed away, all has become new. How true it is!

    Lord bless you.

  26. That sends shivers up my spine.

  27. Oh Deb, this is so beautiful! Thank you so much for sharing it.


  28. I loved this Deb! We are different because of the hope God has set within us like an eternal flame.

  29. Thanks for reminding me of the joy…! I needed that.

  30. Debbie, it made me smile when you said that His people: hear, walk and talk differently. That’s a good sign when we do – that’s for sure. 🙂 Your poem is a beautiful warm-up for worship service tomorrow!

    Blessings ~ Wendy

  31. You are so right! Thank you and God bless you and yours, with more and more joy!

  32. You already are, dear Tammy! 🙂 God bless joyous you!

  33. Thank you for your comment, Pastor Rob . .I just loved it. I was thinking about that verse that said we were peculiar, and new creatures in Christ is wonderful! God bless new you!

  34. You are so welcome, wonderful woman of the word! Thank you for encouraging me! love you and God bless you!

  35. That hope that doesn’t disappoint . . .and makes us different! Love it, Pastor J . ..God bless you and keep you during this time of too much snow!

  36. I need reminded too, Daisy! Your sewing project brought forth joy too! God bless you!

  37. It’s good to be different . .in a good way! 🙂 God bless you as you worship Him, dear Wendy!!!

  38. Christians ARE different!
    If we are not? Then WE have failed. We have failed to accept and use all the resources our God has given us.

    We should stand out from the crowd as the Light within shines out. We should be joyful IN (not under) any circumstances, and always sing His praises, because we know He is ALWAYS with us and always wants the very best for us.

    Thanks for the reminder to keep seeing the beauty of His name
    and the sound of His voice.

  39. this was so much our day… our God is indeed a great God and the giver of all joy! Blessings to you dear Deb! love your poem

  40. Thank you, Mentor Angela! Amen to knowing He is always with us and always wants the very best for us. What a difference He makes in our lives! God bless you as you see Him today!

  41. I was thinking about you today, sweet faith filled fisher lady! Then here you are, praising God! Thank you and God bless you as you rejoice!

  42. These words immediately lifted my spirit to a place of joy, Debbie – thank you!
    “They can hear their Lord singing
    over them with delight” – what wonderful imagery. May we all have ears to hear, eyes to see, hearts responsive to His love…

  43. I had an elderly neighbor lady, from long ago, who told people at her assisted living place, that she heard God singing. ! They all thought she was kind of losing it, but I thought of that verse in Zech. that says its so. 🙂 God bless you as He sings over you tonight too! And thanks for encouraging me, Ali!

  44. Beautiful!!!

  45. Never thought that the Lord would be singing over me! What a wonderful thought to carry with me today. God Bless

  46. Surprise! 🙂 He loves you and delights in you! God bless you, sweet Deborah!
