Psalm 9:1 (The Message)
I’m thanking you, God, from a full heart, I’m writing the book on your wonders. I’m whistling, laughing, and jumping for joy; I’m singing your song, High God.
But let all who take refuge in you be glad; let them ever sing for joy. Spread your protection over them, that those who love your name may rejoice in you. (NLT)
But let all those who take refuge and put their trust in You rejoice; let them ever sing and shout for joy, because You make a covering over them and defend them; let those also who love Your name be joyful in You and be in high spirits. (AMP)
But let all who take refuge in you be glad; let them ever sing for joy. Spread your protection over them, that those who love your name may rejoice in you. (TNIV)
As I reflect on “Joy for Today” my heart if full – full of the joy of the Lord. I can be joyful in the rains. I will hum, laugh, sing, shout and jump for joy! God is my refuge and strength. His joy gives me all the strength I need to face the day. I have no option but to trust Him wholeheartedly. He is everything that I live for – I could never live without His joy!
