Finding Delight — Week 6

Personal update: While the fever has passed, the coughing, hacking, sneezing, sinus pressure, sore throat, and  malaise have not abated. I am thankful that my children are well, however.

I just haven’t felt up to thinking and writing this week. I appreciate your grace regarding this dormant blog.

I have continued with my Bible reading, though not every day. And even when I completed my reading for that day, it was just that: reading. I don’t feel like I did very much delighting. That said, I have one little thing to share.

In 1 John 2 and 3, John writes about abiding in Christ and Christ abiding in the believer. I counted the word abide about eight times. Then, I prayed 1) that I would abide in Christ through his word even when I don’t feel well physically, and 2) that I wouldn’t sin against my family even when I feel terrible.

And this is his commandment, that we believe in the name of his Son Jesus Christ and love one another, just as he has commanded us. Whoever keeps his commandments abides in him, and he in them. And by this we know that he abides in us, by the Spirit whom he has given us.     1 John 3:23-24

That’s pretty much all for me this week.

I would be very encouraged if you have time to share what delighted you this week.

I have enjoyed these last few weeks of reading what you’ve shared. If you’d like to participate, just enter your post link in the linky tool. Because I was so late posting today, I’ll leave this one open through Monday.

  1. Leslie, So sorry that you’ve been sick all week. I love the verses in 1st John on abiding you brought up because yesterday I had a conversation with my pastor’s wife about John 15 regarding abiding.

    Hope you’re feeling better soon.
    Blessings to you.
