"The joy of the Lord is my strength."
I painted this on a pallet last week and gave it to a friend. As I was painting it, I kept reading 'joy of the Lord' over and over.
I don't always feel joyful. This verse continues to remind me that it is not my joy; it is His! When I am able to accept His joy, then I am strong!
I also painted the words "God Will" on a board. Because, He will. He gives us joy. He will do what He says He's going to do. He will, because He is God.
There are times that I have to remind myself that God Will. Sometimes I remind God that He says He will! Sometimes it's hard to believe that He will.
But, God Will.
Then I painted
Isn't it true? When we have been blessed with the joy of the Lord, when we persevere through all things knowing that God will our life will shine on!
Above all, He is King. He loves me and holds me and calls me His own. I am His favorite! So are you.
I painted that too.
Say That Again, His joy covers me, and God will do all that He has promised. And, as the King's Favorite, we will all shine on!
