I heard, I read, I saw

I heard something on Sunday.

I read something on Monday.

I saw something on Tuesday.

On Sunday at church I heard…

the joy of the Lord is my strength. If we don’t have joy we are living in weakness.

On Monday I saw this posted on facebook by Proverbs 31 Ministries

When you’re in over your head, I’ll be there with you {When you’re in rough waters, you will not go down} Because I am your personal God {That’s how much you mean to me!} That’s how much I love you! ~Isaiah 43:2 (The Message)

And today I watched this video posted on one of the blogs I follow Shannon Primicerio’s Blog. Her blog is worth the read as well. Just make sure you grab tissues (like Shannon instructs us to do) before watching this video or you will end up with tears in your coffee.

Christmas is a joyful season and yet many people are going through some really rough times. I am so thankful that as a Christ-follower, I have access to His joy 24/7. Regardless of my circumstances, His joy can be my strength.

His joy provides strength which is packed full of good things…like peace amidst chaos, comfort amidst pain, calm during uncertainty, wise counsel when there seems to be no answers. The list of good things goes on and on. It’s like a never ending Christmas stocking filled with everything I need!

    "His joy provides strength which is packed full of good things…like peace amidst chaos, comfort amidst pain, calm during uncertainty, wise counsel when there seems to be no answers." This really encourages me. It puts a new spin on "comfort and joy!"
