A song. A psalm of David.
1 My heart, O God, is steadfast;
I will sing and make music with all my soul.
2 Awake, harp and lyre!
I will awaken the dawn.
3 I will praise you, Lord, among the nations;
I will sing of you among the peoples.
4 For great is your love, higher than the heavens;
your faithfulness reaches to the skies.
5 Be exalted, O God, above the heavens;
let your glory be over all the earth.
Psalm 108:1-5 NIV
Speak these verses out loud.
When I did….
God became bigger.
I became smaller.
He became mighty and glorious.
My faith grew.
Do you sing and made music with your soul?
Have you awakened the dawn recently?
Have you praised God for who he is and for his faithfulness?
Let’s sing his praise and tell of his great love!
Let’s open our eyes to see his glories.
Today is Joy Day!
I’ve been hearing that some of you look forward to Joy Day! all week long. There really is something about taking time to count our blessings from the week, to say thanks for the good and the not so good. And doing it together.
Will you join with me in counting ‘seven’ from the past week?
I’m grateful to God for…
- Hosting brunch for friends at my home….just what I needed.
- Cool sleeping weather.
- Sharing an extra chocolaty, extra malty, malt. Mmmm.
- Knowing God will redeem the loss of AdSense.
- The delightful surprise of the visit of far-away friends.
- The nourishment of HIS Word.
- A long phone chat with my dear friend.
Now it your turn! Please join me by tapping in your ‘seven’ in the ‘share your extraordinary thoughts’ section below.
Have you noticed? Something amazing happens when we ‘write out’ our thanks. I guarantee your Joy meter will rise. And during the week…you’ll be more keenly aware of the joy makers in your week. Want even more joy? Take the Joy Dare here.
Thank you for stopping by today. I appreciate you and your sweet comments make my day.
May your heart overflow with the joy HE generously pours into our lives. And may you be filled with JOY!
Making music with my soul,
I’d be delighted if you’d share the extraordinary goodness here with your friends
