I Find Joy in…

10827942_911504698881269_1165998114180095331_othe Lord.  I realize that is a religious cliché and that its easy to say.  I don’t mean it as one.  There is something precious to me about being in the presence of the Lord. Everything that I have been dealing with fades away and joy comes rushing in.

When I am feeling overwhelmed emotionally with sadness or frustration, being able to get in His presence brings joy.

When I am feeling like the weight of the world is on my shoulders, I can step into His presence and joy floods my soul.

When I am feeling too  week to carry on, coming into His presence, I find the joy of the Lord is my strength.

When I feel like I don’t want to let anyone in to my world in a manner of self-protection, God can flood my soul and I find joy in Him.

When I am feeling on top of the world, the joy of the Lord keeps me grounded.

About Jackie S

I have been through a lot in life, but through Christ I am more than an overcomer. I am not perfect, I will never claim to be. Praise God I am forgiven though. I am rather opinionated. I see most things in black and white and believe honesty is always the best policy. This combination sometimes comes off harsh. The truth is I love people. I truly love helping others and try the believe the best about others. It is easy to find faults, but focusing on strengths is more my style, but I also shoot it straight. If it sounds harsh, know my heart is for something better for you
