Consider it Pure Joy!

Rejoice in the Lord always. And again, I say, re-
joice! Philippians 4:4

It is a good thing to 'rejoice in the Lord.' Perhaps
you have tried it but seemed to fail at first. Don't
give it a second thought, and forge ahead. Even
when you cannot feel any joy, there is no spring
to your step, nor any comfort or encouragement
in your life, continue to rejoice and 'consider it
pure joy, whenever you face trials of many kinds,' 
( James 1:2) regard it as joy, delight in it, and God 
will reward your faith. His Holy Spirit will sustain 
you in your bold advance and fill your heart with 
gladness and praise. You will find that your heart 
is exhilarated and refreshed by the fullness within.  

Be filled with the Spirit...Sing and make music in 
your heart to the Lord. Ephesians 5:18-19

Let us sing even when we don't feel like it, for in this 
way we give wings to heavy feet and turn weariness 
into strength. John Henry Jowett

Reader, do you know that you can sing before the
Lord with tears streaming down your face? Yes,
you can!
