Joy Unspeakable!


Thanks Iris for choosing such an awesome theme for this Thankful Thursday! This is one of my favorite scriptures on Joy:

It is good to praise the LORD and make music to
your name, O Most High,
to proclaim your love in the morning and
your faithfulness at night,
to the music of the ten-stringed
lyre, and the melody of the harp.
For you make me glad by
your deeds, O LORD; I sing for joy at the works of your hands.
PS 92:1-4
Lord, I pray I will always proclaim your love and faithfulness no matter what I face each day. Thank you for the gift of joy, and all the many wonderful works of your hands I witness each day. You are a Mighty God and I give thanks to you. Your loving kindness sustains me, your grace upholds me. Be glorified in life I pray. In Jesus name, Amen.
Please join us over at Grace Alone today as see what other grateful hearts are thanking God for!
