His Joy is Here to Stay

By Sindy Nagel

 

Trust in Him, the God of hope

Who fills you with His peace

The Spirit’s power within your heart

Will be your joy-filled feast.

 

It matters not what circumstance

You find you’re in today

God will walk you through your trials

He is your hope and stay.

 

His joy and peace; His endless love

Is true abundant life

It carries you through thick and thin

No matter what your strife

 

His strength He gives the weary

He fortifies the weak

He lifts you up on eagle’s wings

When heartfelt joy you seek

 

Fame and fortune do not last

Worldly “happy” fades away

But with His Spirit deep inside

His joy is here to stay.

 

Inspired by the Word of God from Romans 15:13

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

 


 

 

Listen and Obey

BibleDo not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. (James 1:27)

My dear children, I have given you all eyes to see and ears to hear. Read my Word with your eyes. Listen to my Spirit within you using the spiritual ears I have given you. However, do not deceive yourselves by merely listening to the word, but do what it says. When you listen and then walk away and forget what you have heard, you mislead yourself. Yes, it is wonderful that you listen to my word, but what good is that if you do not obey it? Are you any richer for it? You are my precious children. You belong to me. Show yourselves to be mine by your actions. Do not be just hearers of the word—be doers of the word. My wise words are like a priceless treasure. Do not keep this fortune to yourself, but share this wealth of knowledge with all who will listen. Others will see who I am, when they see who you are. Be doers of my word.
