Devotional: Joy, An Intangible Gift From The Father

DEVOTIONAL

Philippians 4:4
Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!

Now the Lord does not waste words, so when the Scripture says TWICE, “rejoice”, then what do you get out of what we are called to do?

Take note, NOWHERE does this mention “happiness”, there is a vast difference. Be it in triumph or tragedy, my friends, in and through our Savior, we can R E J O I C E!

Our Creator is The God of joy! Let us always be amazed and in awe of Him!

Psalm 28:7
The LORD is my Strength and my Shield; my heart trusted in Him, and I am helped: therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth; and with my song will I praise Him.

Nehemiah 8:10
Then he said unto them, Go your way, eat the fat, and drink the sweet, and send portions unto them for whom nothing is prepared: for this day is holy unto our Lord: neither be ye sorry; for the joy of the LORD is your strength.

Prayer

Beautiful Lord

You and You Alone

Regardless of our circumstances
You remain constant, Father

You plant, water and grow seeds
of
joy within us

To You be all
GLORY
HONOR
and
PRAISE

In the Name of Jesus
Amen

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
