Dear Father, thank you for filling my life with your joy. I declare that the joy of the Lord is my strength, and that joy saturates my spirit and bursts forth in refreshing streams of rejoicing. I rejoice always in the Lord my God, who has filled my heart with gladness, and my mouth with songs of rejoicing.
Psalm 40:1-2 (KJV) ~~ I waited patiently for the Lord; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry. He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings.
