"Joy is the Theme"
I read in Your word today about how You
prayed for the disciples. It has always been one of my most favorite
passages, helping me in hard and difficult times. The most intimate
prayer recorded was for us, so that we would know You have plans
for us. A prayer that lets us rest assured we are loved, protected, and
can have the same experience that the disciples themselves had with
You. But it is that one spot, that one line that says we can be filled
not just with joy but with the same joy that You have. Now that's joy!
We have been given a plan, one that assures us if we stay close to You,
the source of all joy, we can have a wonderful, intimate relationship
that will leave us filled with joy!
Thank You Lord!
"And now I am
coming to You. I have told you many things while I was with you so that
you would be filled with my joy!"
