EMPOWERING LIVES WITH PURPOSE:
Request joy! The joy of the Lord is our strength.
” Songs of joy and victory are sung in the camp of the godly. The strong right arm of the Lord has done glorious things!” ( Psalm 118:15)
When you feel like you will never laugh again…God says in His word that He’ll …”show you the way of life, granting you the joy of His presence and pleasure of living with you forever.” (Psalm 16:11)
I thought this was so good:
Joy is a flame that glimmers only in the palm of the open and humble hand.
n an open and humble palm, released and surrendered to receive, light dances, it flickers happy. The moment the hand is clenched tight fingers all pointing toward self, with rights and demands, joy is snuffed out. Anger is the lid that suffocates joy until she lies limp and lifeless.
When you need your joy restored, read these scriptures…
Please remember the J O Y of the Lord is our strength!
Amen Lord Jesus. Thank you for joy unending and always being able to find it in You, Lord.
