Warrior Prayers Day 11-Joy

09/17/2011

Oh, how I need this wisdom right now :).

“What is joy really?  And if my strength comes from the joy of the Lord (Psalm28:7), then what does the joy of the Lord really look like?”

What do we do when we feel like being grumpy, when things just aren’t going your way?  “How do we find joy and strength from the Lord?

Here’s the secret: Focus on Christ.  Thinking on His work and embracing it with a heart of gratefulness is enough to make even the grumpiest among us ‘burst out in songs of thanksgiving’.  No matter where we are, or what we’re experiencing, we CAN find joy,” not because of how we feel or what we are going through, “but because of what He’s done and made possible through His death and resurrection.”

Mommy Prayer Day 11- I pray that no matter what we are facing today, we can find Joy through Christ today.  I pray that our joy is contagious to our boys and that they seek Him when it’s easier to be grumpy and sad.
