Choose Joy No Matter What

From Habakkuk’s Prayer (Habakkuk 3:17-19)

Though the fig tree does not bud and there are no grapes on the vines, though the olive crop fails and the fields produce no food, though there are no sheep in the pen and no cattle in the stalls, yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will be joyful in God my Savior. The Sovereign Lord is my strength; He makes my feet like the feet of a deer, He enables me to go on the heights.

 

Choose Joy No Matter What

By Sindy Nagel

 

No matter what I do today

No matter if I fail

My strength is found in Christ the Lord

His joy in me prevails

 

The fig trees may not bud in time

No grapes found on the vines

Yet His joy bubbles in my heart

And on my face it shines

 

It matters not there are no sheep

Or cattle in the stalls

My lips will make a joyful sound

That echoes down the halls

 

Through fire and storms, plenty and naught,

Good times and bad, I’ve trod

Yet I’ve always found true peace and joy

When I rest in the arms of God.


 

Give Thanks in Everything

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.

Shout for Joy to the Lord

Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth. Serve the Lord with gladness; come before him with joyful songs. Know that the Lord is God. It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, the sheep of his pasture. Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name. For the Lord is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations. (Psalm 100)

My blessed child, I have heard your prayer. I woke you with a song in your heart today. Listen to the song and respond in praise. Before you put your feet on the floor, shout for joy! I AM. I created you; you are mine. I am good. Enter my presence with thanksgiving. I have given you the breath of life, and I sustain your life every day. I alone am the source of your strength and joy. You can do all things today through Me. I am faithful to all generations. My love endures throughout eternity. Sing a new song of praise to me today.

Open your eyes, O child of the King

Open your heart and let praises ring

Open your ears to hear His sweet voice

Open your mouth and make joyful noise

 

 

In the wee hours of morning before you rise

When you lie in bed and open your eyes

Your heart releases a sweet song of praise

That reminds you who authors all of your days

 

 

With thankful heart, shout for joy to the Lord

Before you roll over and put feet to the floor

Remember who made you and to whom you belong

Praise Him again with the words of this song

 

 

Submit this new day to the Lord of the earth

The One who designed you and gave you His worth

Let Him lead you today on the path He has willed

And see how much joy in your heart He has filled

 

 

When morning turns the corner into afternoon

Remember the One who hung sun and moon

With thankful heart, shout for joy to the King

Let the words of this song burst forth as you sing

 

 

As the sun sets down the runway of day

Turn your heart to the One to whom you do pray

And thank him profoundly for the gift of this song

That gave you a way to praise him the day long

 

 

And when you climb into bed and try to sleep tight

Give thanks to the One who brings morning light

For this day He did give you along with a story

Shout for joy to the Lord, the King of all glory

 

(By Sindy Nagel)

 

Darlene Zschech – Shout to the Lord – Lyrics

 

My Jesus, my Savior Lord, there is none like You

All of my days, I want to praise

The wonders of Your mighty love

My comfort, my shelter

Tower of refuge and strength

Let every breath, all that I am

Never cease to worship You

Shout to the Lord, all the earth, let us sing

Power and majesty, praise to the King

Mountains bow down and the seas will roar

At the sound of Your name

I sing for joy at the work of Your hands

Forever I’ll love You, forever I’ll stand

Nothing compares to the promise I have in You

My Jesus, my Savior Lord, there is none like You

All of my days, I want to praise

The wonders of Your mighty love

My comfort, my shelter

Tower of refuge and strength

Let every breath, all that I am

Never cease to worship You

Shout to the Lord, all the earth, let us sing

Power and majesty, praise to the King

Mountains bow down and the seas will roar

At the sound of Your name

I sing for joy at the work of Your hands

Forever I’ll love You, forever I’ll stand

Nothing compares to the promise I have

Shout to the Lord, all the earth, let us sing

Power and majesty, praise to the King

Mountains bow down and the seas will roar

At the sound of Your name

I sing for joy at the work of Your hands

Forever I’ll love You, forever I’ll stand

Nothing compares to the promise I have in You

Nothing compares to the promise I have in You

Nothing compares to the promise I have in You
