Psalm 11:16

Psalm 11:16

Good morning! This is indeed is the day that the Lord has made, and I will rejoice and be glad in it!
I am joyful because I know where my strength comes from my hope comes from and how joy has the capacity to change an atmosphere. 🙌🏾
Over 40 years ago I had a life changing encounter with The Lord Jesus Christ! At the church I attended we would sing 🎶 the song 🎵 “I’ve got a river of life flowing out of me makes the lane to walk and the blind to see. It opens prison doors sets the captive free… i’ve got a river of life flowing out of me!
The song was full of life it had an upbeat tempo, and the next line spoke of it being a life giving source! “Spring up oh well within my soul, spring up oh well and make me whole. Spring up oh well and gift to make that life abundantly!🎶🎵

The jewel of the Lord according to Nehemiah 8:10 is to be our strength! When we are strong in the Lord and in the power of his might we are positioned to help those who are weak. We never know what someone else is going through let your joy and strength pull that person through! The good news is we are not “pulling” in our own ability! 💪🏽 We are pulling them through to the One Who will sustain and uphold them!
Let your joy flow out like a river and give life to those around you today!

  1. The next time I read a blog, I hope that it doesnt fail me just as much as this one. I mean, Yes, it was my choice to read through, but I actually thought youd have something interesting to say. All I hear is a bunch of complaining about something that you could possibly fix if you werent too busy searching for attention.
