Prayer Journey — Joy

You dear Lord are the source of joy, pure joy. Nothing on this earth can match the joy you bring to my soul. Though trials may persist, they do not extinguish the joy you bring. Though my heart may be saddened, you lift me up. Though I struggle, you give me hope. May your wisdom guide me this day. Keep me on the path of life everlasting, the way to your joy dear Lord.

Therefore you too have grief now; but I will see you again, and your heart will rejoice, and no one will take your joy away from you. – John 16:22 (NASB)

  1. Thank you for the reminder, as I was thinking about this very thing today. I look forward to the joy of being married, having children, and making a house into a home. But before, during, and after this, I know I can lean into God’s embrace of pure joy in whatever life situation I am in.

    Thank you.

    1. Yes. Resting in God’s embrace is where we find true joy. I think of Paul in Phillipians 4:11: “Not that I speak from want, for I have learned to be content in whatever circumstances I am.” Thanks for sharing your thoughts. Blessings.

  2. That is the one thing I can count on and that is the Lord. He is always there for me, no matter what. Beautiful prayer this morning

  3. Indeed, I say amen! Thank you Father for opening our eyes to your beauty, thank you Jesus for the cross thank you Holy Spirit for pointing to Jesus our Saviour and guiding us Amen!
