will for us

unto Him
hold fast.

You are with me so I can know and do Your will.

Yet . . .

 

When things seem
at their worst

with no end
in sight

help me rejoice
in You, Lord

to joy in the God
of my life.

**********

I can choose to trust You in situations I don’t understand, and rejoice in You, for You are with me.

**********

“Though the fig tree may not blossom, nor fruit be on the vines; though the labor of the olive may fail, and the fields yield no food; though the flock be cut off from the fold, and there be no herd in the stalls – “

“Yet I will rejoice in the LORD, I will joy in the God of my salvation.”

Habakkuk 3:17 18 NKJV

Rejoice In Christ

 

We are the
circumcision

who worship God
and rejoice

having no confidence
in our flesh

trusting His Spirit
His voice.

You are with me and I rejoice in You.

Rejoice In Hope

 

Before I
was even born

my Jesus died
for me

so I can know
how much I’m loved

having the hope of His
glory.

**********

You are with me and give me hope.

**********

“Therefore having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.”

“But God demonstrates HIs own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”

Romans 5:1,2,8. NKJV

I Rejoice Over You

 

I rejoice over you
to do you good

and position you by
My hand

with all My heart
and all My soul

I make a covenant with you
that stands.

You establish Your good for me.

“And I will make an everlasting covenant with them, that I will not turn away from doing them good; but I will put My fear in their hearts so that they will not depart from Me. Yes I will rejoice over them to do them good, and I will assuredly plant them in this land, with all My heart and with all My soul.” Jeremiah 32:40,41 NKJV

Rejoice

 

Rejoice
for I have risen

I’m no longer
in the tomb

crucified
for your sins

now I’m alive
in each of you.

You establish my reason to rejoice.

“And as they went to tell His disciples, behold, Jesus met them, saying, ‘Rejoice!’ And they came and held Him by the feet and worshiped Him. Lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Matthew 28:9,20 NKJV

My Word

 

How I delight
when you stand

in awe of
My word

letting it grow
within you

rejoicing in what
you heard.

My wonder and awe is established by Your word.

“But on this one will I look: on him who is poor and of a contrite spirit, and who trembles at My word. Hear the word of the LORD, you who tremble at His word.” Isaiah 66:2,5 NKJV

Eyes and Ears

 

Once your ears
could not hear

now they’re alive
to Me

and your eyes
that were obscure

rejoice in what
they see.

Jesus establishes my hearing and seeing.

“In that day the deaf shall hear the words of the book, and the eyes of the blind shall see out of obscurity and out of darkness. The humble also shall increase their joy in the LORD, and the poor among men shall rejoice in the Holy One of Israel.” Isaiah 29:18,19 NKJV

Ready

 

 

Holy, holy, holy
is your Lord God Almighty

fall down and worship
only Me

let your voices rise
like the sound of many waters

for My bride is dressed
and ready.

Jesus establishes my worship.

“Salvation and glory and honor and power belong to the Lord our God! And the twenty-four elders and the four living creatures fell down and worshiped God who sat on the throne, saying. ‘Amen! Alleluia!’ And I heard, as it were, the voice of a great multitude, as the sound of many waters and as the sound of mighty thunderings, saying, ‘Alleluia! For the Lord God Omnipotent reigns!’ Let us be glad and rejoice and give Him glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His wife has made herself ready. And I fell at his feet to worship him. But he said to me, ‘See that you do not do that! I am your fellow servant, and of your brethren who have the testimony of Jesus. Worship God! For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.’ ” Revelation 19:1,4,6,7,10
