Everything with Joy

22 06 2011

We ask him to strengthen you by his glorious might with all the power you need to patiently endure everything with joy – Colossians 1:11 (God’s Word Translation)

Some people are blessed with the ability to approach life with a positive outlook despite the many things that may be happening at the time in their lives. It is a quality that I admire in my husband. He expresses the contentment of the blessing of the day even when it may be filled with challenges.

The scripture today is one of Paul’s prayers for other believers to be strengthened by God and to “patiently endure everything with joy”.  It is a reminder of our God’s ability to provide the divine blessings of strength, patience and a glad heart in every circumstance.  In the bible, Joy is described in the many ways that it is the “natural outcome of the fellowship with God”.  What a blessing that we can approach our Father to experience these precious gifts as we continue to serve Him.
