The Book of Nehemiah and My Parents

       "Do not sorrow, for the joy of the Lord is your strength"
(Nehemiah 8:10)

Over...and over...the storms in this place, even this big house probably be closed for next couple years. There is a couple married that also God's servants are hit one more time. For how many times? many many times I even can't remember it all. Only these eyes toward them and see how they survive and no words could ever spoken. 
"Mama...you look so strong, you fell down but soon you rose again. You know that joy of the Lord won your heart" Smile..

God has brought me to the book of Nehemiah. I read and yes I learn what God wants to show me. Nehemiah, he was just ordinary  man that God used to make restoration, to build the ruins in that city, and to bring people to God. But look, they hit him again, humility him again, and stood  against him...how rude this world. God was not silent..He was there for Nehemiah when He used him, Nehemiah don't have to be afraid and grieve, don't have to run. God brought him bunch of people to help him to do God's willing for the city. 

God reminded me again that I shouldn't be sorrow. The story of Nehemiah has confirmed me again that God is able even they beating us.

 I felt this just so beautiful when I read and my head was noding many times " Oh yes,..oh how neat..." I even cried when I found this beautiful verse (Nehemiah 8.10). I never noticed about the story of Nehemiah before in my life but soon it came in perfect time when God wanted to remind me again. I feel how He loves me, I feel that He remember me. I believe that God has brought me to the book of Nehemiah to remind me my sorrow of my parents ministries here. 

I can see God always there even evil breaking down the best defense. God's there He has regale after all and celebrate that we always win with Him.

If you have friends or family or leaders who struggle for their ministries please remind them of the story of Nehemiah...
the ordinary man that God used to glorify His name, even Nehemiah was attacked God was there for Him.
and remember it always has beautiful ending with God :)

Matthew 5:10-12
"Blessed are those who have been persecuted for the sake of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. 11"Blessed are you when people insult you and persecute you, and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of Me. 12"Rejoice and be glad, for your reward in heaven is great; for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.
Thank you for sharing the book of Nehemiah and what it means to you. I will remember that as a way to encourage those who need that.
God is always faithful. He will bless you for being faithful to Him.

That is very encouraging! I love it when I find gems like that in books that are somewhat less "popular" in the Bible. It's yet another reminder that they are all there for a reason! Thank you for sharing, Delvalina!

I am so sorry that I couldn't be of any help for you and your family. Sometimes just God understands why things are what they are. I will continue to keep you in my prayers.

Much love to you, my dear friend. xo

Nehemiah seems like perfect reading for any who are in ministry and having a hard time. My church teaches that we are all ministers and all sent to reach out to people who don't know Christ. I will be sure to read Nehemiah this week. Bless you.

I will re-read the story of Nehemiah once again - it is forgotten in my mind. It's always wonderful to find these lovely reminders on your blog, Delvalina. Wishing you love and peace today, Dear. xo

I am just coming to your blog, so I don't know all of the history here, but I do know what it is to be a child of someone in ministry. My dad was a pastor my whole life and many of my friends are also children of ministers/pastors.

We have been studying Ezra and Nehemiah in our church school lessons (Sunday School), so I thought it was interesting that you mentioned Nehemiah here. I love that you are able to apply his life to yours. :-)
