Joy and Thanksgiving
by Sindy Nagel
Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. Do not put out the Spirit’s fire (1 Thessalonians 5:16-19).
I’ve put in you a joyful heart
A gift of my great love
When others look upon your face
They see your God above.
Give thanks in every circumstance
You meet along the road
This is My will for you in Christ
Who carries your heavy load.
My Spirit deep within your soul
Lives only for My name
He guides you in My will for you
Don’t quench My Spirit’s flame.
Your constant prayers and grateful heart
Are blessings unto Me
Living in My will for you
Will set your spirit free.
Be joyful always; pray non-stop
Give thanks for all I give
Listen to the words I speak
In abundance, you will live.
