KEEP THE JOY
“Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.”
Psalms 16:11 KJV
We have a lot of joy at Christmas and we can have the joy all year long if we will stay in the presence of Jesus. Our Scripture verse tells us that when we are in the presence of Jesus we have the fulness of joy. Pastor Barney Elliott Warren wrote one of my favorite hymns “Joy Unspeakable”. I love this hymn.
I love these words in this hymn “I have found the joy no tongue can tell, How its waves of glory roll; It is like a great o’erflowing well, Springing up within my soul.” O the joy of knowing that Jesus loves us unconditionally and He will never leave us. He really cares about us, so much that He died on the cross for us.
If you are going through a dark valley, allow Jesus to pick you up in His loving arms. He will carry you until the pain goes away and will set you once again on the mountain top of happiness. What a loving compassionate Saviour we are privileged to know and have. O how I love Jesus.
