I pray that God, the source of hope, will fill you completely with joy and peace because you trust in him. Then you will overflow with confident hope through the power of the Holy Spirit. Romans 15:13 NLT
“True joy can be obtained in the heartfelt gratitude of God's love, mercy, and grace.” He provides EVERYTHING we need to embrace a heart of thanks as we learn to TRUST. God arms us with STRENGTH. He teaches valuable lessons when we try to be patient and WAIT.
Often, we become weary when the sun doesn’t shine and dark clouds prevent us from seeing what is GOOD. We forget HOW to open our eyes with clarity and need to be reminded who’s in charge of our days.
God nurtures PRAISE! His mercies are new each and every morning. He wakes us to rise with appreciation for ALL He provides. Rain or shine, He helps us deal with frustrations as we PRAY in Jesus’ name and embrace the power of His amazing LOVE.
We mustn’t let gloomy days diminish JOY. God knows what He’s doing. He will reveal His will when the time is right. The sun will shine with greater reward if we hold the love of Jesus, seek refuge in Him and welcome His PEACE every day of our lives.
Dear God, thank you for humbling our hearts to remember YOU are working for the GOOD. You open our eyes and prepare us to rise. Thank you for the PEACE of Jesus. Rain or shine, we will welcome Your STRENGTH as YOU hold us together. Thank you for helping us find JOY as we surrender doubt and patiently wait for better days to come. Thank you for ALL You provide. Thank you for the gift of a grateful heart and the LOVE of Your faithfulness. Amen
