One of my favorite verses, throughout my life, has been Psalm 37:4, "Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He shall give thee the desires of thy heart." God has blessed me so much more abundantly than I could ever deserve or imagine. I never dreamed that I would be married to such a wonderful man, and be the mother of five precious blessings! The more we delight in Him, imperfect though we are, the more we realize the abundant blessings all around us. I have found that the more I wait upon Him, and seek His Will for my life, the more my desires are aligned with His. I need to sit at His feet daily, so I can be molded by the Master into the image He desires me to be.One way that my children and I seek to delight in Him is to record our blessings in our journals, thanking Him for His choice gifts. (I highly recommend One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp, as inspiration in recording God's blessings in your life. No book apart from the Bible has changed my life as that book has.)
Ann Voskamp. Here is a snippet of my son's list of three gifts orange.
I was so blessed that Dayspring offered me the opportunity to review one of their lovely totes, Delight Yourself in the Lord. I was especially excited, since Psalm 37:4 has always been one of my favorite verses. I love that without even saying a word, I can share God's Word with others, as I go about my day. I must say that it has been a great conversation piece, which can lead to further discussion about God.
The oilcloth tote is large enough to hold my homeschool planner, journal, Bible, cloth diaper(s), and any other needs. If I don't want to tote my purse, as well, I can just put my wallet and keys in the compartment, or I can fit my entire purse in the bag. This is so handy for me, as a regular diaper bag just doesn't suit my needs any more.
Dayspring also sent me this lovely jute bag, to bless a friend with. One of my friends is nearly due with a little one, and I was excited to give her some baby and mama gifts in this lovely bag. I hope that it is an encouragement to her, especially during these weeks while she awaits the arrival of her littlest blessing.
Dayspring is hosting a special on all of their totes during the month of June. If you buy two tote bags, you get one free.
Dayspring is graciously giving away one Delight Yourself in the Lord oil cloth tote bag (retail value $24.99) to one reader of this blog.
