Psalm 16:11 Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence [is] fulness of joy; at thy right hand [there are] pleasures for evermore.
Oh what joy to be in His presence; to feast on His goodness, His unfailing love, and knowing that my inheritance is in Him. Joy overflows my heart to know that when I spend time with my Jesus – the lover of my soul – I have nothing to worry about! Look at the lilies of the field?!
Spring and summer time they are in the most awesome array of colors. Fall the leaves tell such a wonderful story and then are no more. When winter arrives, they become wilted and worn by the change in temperature, covered over by snow or cut back to stalks as they rest in readiness for next spring. There is always a time of looking forward to those beautiful colors to arrive once again in my garden.
These seasons express themselves in our lives and we ought to anticipate them with joy. This joy is the same no matter the season. A joy found in Jesus alone. Show us the path of life Jesus, so that we become so full with your joy, and delight in an abundance of pleasure.
