Exulting in the Promises!

Long and difficult describe many days of motherhood. Still other days filled with happiness and laughter spill out as precious memories in the landscape of time.  The challenge for us lies in the knowledge that we never know which day it will be, on any given morning as our feet hit the floor and we start the day. In each of these days, we can rest in the promises of God’s word. The good and the bad in light of God’s truth can encourage our hearts when we hurt, and keep us grounded when the days are easy.

I love the word “exults.” It has a deeper meaning for me than just rejoice and be joyful. The dictionary lists the following definition – “show or feel elation or jubilation, especially as the result of a success.”

The synonyms are helpful as well “rejoice, be joyful, be happy, be delighted, be elated, be ecstatic, be overjoyed, be jubilant, be rapturous, be in raptures, be thrilled, jump for joy, be on cloud nine, be in seventh heaven.”

Can you say you are “on cloud nine?” Instead of waiting for the perfect day, or the perfect job, perfect children, etc. we can exult because of the Lord!  He is our strength, shield and our help. With this promise firmly in hand, we can choose Joy and live a life filled with gratefulness.

Will you join me today in singing praise and thankfulness to Him?
