Sunday Praise and Worship: #Joyful, Joyful

SundayPraiseAndWorship-50--AMP

For the past month or so I’ve been sharing different Scripture passages about JOY on Facebook and Twitter. I started reading Bible passages about JOY to keep my mind focused on Jesus, no matter how I’m feeling. Then it dawned on me that others are probably having the same struggle, so I began searching for passages to share on social media.

Beloved, if you are living with any kind of burdens, you know that holding on to your JOY in the midst of those struggles is not easy. It is a choice that has to be made every single day.

Oh come, let us sing to the Lord!
Let us shout joyfully to the Rock of our salvation.
Let us come before His presence with thanksgiving;
Let us shout joyfully to Him with psalms.
For the Lord is the great God,
And the great King above all gods.
In His hand are the deep places of the earth;
The heights of the hills are His also.
The sea is His, for He made it;
And His hands formed the dry land.

Oh come, let us worship and bow down;
Let us kneel before the Lord our Maker.
For He is our God,
And we are the people of His pasture,
And the sheep of His hand.
—Psalm 95:1-17

While  you listen to Casting Crowns singing “Joyful, Joyful,” lift up your hands and hearts to “the God of glory and the Lord of love.” How can we not be JOYFUL in the Lord our Maker and the Rock of our salvation?

Joyful, joyful, we adore You
God of glory, Lord of love
Hearts unfold like flowers before You
Opening to the sun above
Melt the clouds of sin and sadness
Drive the dark of doubt away

    • Thank you so much, Nora! The JOYFUL posts on FB started a couple of months ago when I was looking up and reading anything I could about the JOY of the Lord. I need that kind of reminder everyday, especially when I’m not feeling that well. So I figured there might be other people who would be thankful for such a reminder, and “Holding on to your JOY” was born. I’m going to keep it up as long as I can! ❤ you, girlfriend!
