Your Joy is Your Strength...

Cherry Creek State Park, yesterday...reflection..
One thing I know for sure: '...the joy of the Lord is your strength...' (Nehemiah 8:10). May we never lose sight, even in these dark days, we must continue to believe that the Lord will enable us to drink  deeply and be full of His joy!! 'Surely God is my salvation; I will trust and not be afraid. The LORD, the LORD, is my strength and my song; he has become my salvation. With joy you will draw water from the wells of salvation.' (Isaiah 12:2-3)

In the Book of 2 Chronicles 20:21, 'Jehoshaphat, after consulting the people, Jehoshaphat appointed men to sing to the Lord and to praise Him for the splendor of His holiness as they went out at the head of the army, saying:

“Give thanks to the Lord,
    for his love endures forever.”

 'O clap your hands, all ye people; shout unto God with the voice of triumph.
 For the Lord most high is terrible; he is a great King over all the earth.
He shall subdue the people under us, and the nations under our feet.
He shall choose our inheritance for us, the excellency of Jacob whom he loved. Selah.
God is gone up with a shout, the Lord with the sound of a trumpet.
Sing praises to God, sing praises: sing praises unto our King, sing praises.
For God is the King of all the earth: sing ye praises with understanding.
God reigneth over the heathen: God sitteth upon the throne of his holiness.
The princes of the people are gathered together, even the people of the God of Abraham: for the shields of the earth belong unto God: he is greatly exalted.'
                                                                                                Psalm 47

Thank you, Karen Davis, for the inspiration!!
