The Joy of the LORD

23 08 2011

Don’t be sad because the joy you have in the Lord is your strength. Nehemiah 8:10b

A new day brings with it new opportunities for a whole new set of experiences. Occasionally, I have finished a day that was full of the unexpected. Something happened that may have resulted in a series of events that I could not have even imagined. This is the nature of life and living.

Setting “the stage” or “our mindset” for each day can provide the strength or the endurance needed to make it through whatever the day brings. If we approach each day with praises on our lips for our Faithful Father, thanksgiving in our hearts for His goodness and rejoicing in our spirit for His peace and His love, it will help us to endure. It will help us to respond to the day’s events in faith and in love. It will remind us that Jesus is faithful to be with us each step of the way. The joy of the Lord is our strength.
