You have put more joy in my heart than they have when their grain and wine abound.Psalm 4:7
Martin Luther said, It is pleasing to God whenever thou rejoicest or laughest from the bottom of thy heart.
To know how to love and to cherish is a lesson in appraisal and appreciation of all the precious things in life.~ Pastor Bob Barnett
Mercy & Grace
Graceby Max Lucado
Max Lucado asks a deeper question: Have you been changed by grace? Shaped by grace? Strengthened by grace? Emboldened by grace? Softened by grace? Snatched by the nape of your neck and shaken to your senses by grace?
Gods grace has a drenching about it. A wildness about it. A white-water, riptide, turn-you-upside-downness about it. Grace comes after you. It rewires you. From insecure to God secure. From regret riddled to better-because-of-it. From afraid to die to ready to fly.
Choosing Gratitudeby Nancy Leigh DeMoss
By intentionally thanking God and others, bitterness and entitlement are replaced with joy and the humble realization of just how undeserving we really are. Derived from a popular Revive Our Hearts radio series, Choosing Gratitude: Your Journey to Joy challenges and equips the reader to live a life of intention. A life based on thankfulness – for the freedom Christ has provided and for the blessings of others.
