Devotional: Leaping~The Joy of Jesus

DEVOTIONAL
Luke 1:41-44
41 And it came to pass, that, when Elisabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the babe leaped in her womb; and Elisabeth was filled with the Holy Ghost:

42 And she spake out with a loud voice, and said, Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb.

43 And whence is this to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me?

44 For, lo, as soon as the voice of thy salutation sounded in mine ears, the babe leaped in my womb for joy.

********************************************************
The Scriptures are just awesome, that is the best description I can find!

May Jesus Christ cause each one of us to leap for joy!

Let our hearts race and a smile erupt
Like someone so much in love
At the mention of His precious Name!

PRAYER

Almighty Father
God of all
Creator
Please give us a deeper love for our Savior
Each and every day

Let us please realize
To the best of human capability
The sacrifices made on our behalf

Lord, please bring a smile to our face
Comfort to our hearts
Faith, strength, courage, and perseverance

Help us please, when we struggle to gather a mustard seed measure of faith

Please let us realize in You ALONE
There is strength

Because of our Savior
We can abandon anxiety for courageousness

Our Father, there is no joy outside of You

Thank You for giving us a peak into a moment in time
When even a child inside his mother’s womb
Lept, anticipating the birth of his King!

Renew, we pray
Our excitement about You
Ignite a fire inside each one of us
A burning love for our Dear Savior
Let nothing or no one be able to quench our pursuit
Of Him

We are His and He is ours
Jesus, Lord of all LOVES US
How can we keep THAT a secret?

Please open opportunities
Increase our courage and desire to share that with anyone listening!
Let those who have ears, hear it!

In the Name of the Precious Christ Jesus
The Everlasting Lord,
AMEN

About voicevessel bwc

First, and most importantly, I love Jesus Christ and I trust in Him as my Lord and Savior. I was raised in a Christian home by a godly dad and mom (who planned and had me in July before turning 42 in August), and 5 older siblings. My father passed away when I was 7 and my mother (who went to be with the Lord in 2005 at 81) never remarried. As a child, I was bullied at school, so I did not have many friends. I didn't want to tell my mom this because I knew she had enough worry being a widow at 50. I know what it is like to be lonely. As an adult, God showed me the value of His Friendship and has blessed me, too, with rich relationships with dear friends who also love the Lord. My husband and I (married 31 years as of 2020), have three wonderful, adult children and son-in-law as well as three darling grandchildren. Along with many others, my husband lost his job, but we refuse to be fearful or angry. The Lord has provided for us and we are so thankful for the opportunity to express gratitude through personal contact and occasional memories I share through writing. I believe the Lord has given me a venue to engage with others and a means to share His Word. Thank you for checking out my page. I hope you enjoy what you read. If there is anything positive or insightful in the devotionals (NOT CALLING MY WRITING "INSPIRED" by any means!), I give all credit and glory to Jesus Christ! On the other side of that, when something makes no sense, that's all me
