"Get Joy" Book Verses

A new friend of mine, Leslie (who happens to be a scrapbooker extraordinaire!), made me this beautiful empty book to fill with something. It took me a little while to decide but now that I have... I love it! I thought I would take the next few post and share what I wrote on those pages.

I have been going through some discouraging times lately mostly of my own making. I decided to fill those beautifully crafted pages with my favorite verses and important people in my life. The book sits on my nightstand for me to read before I go to sleep. I read it to remind me of God's promises and that He always keeps them. I read them to remind me of what this life is about. I read them to remind me of the people I love. I read them to remind of the God I serve. I read them to remind me of the God I adore. I read them to remind me of God's great, deep and wide love for me. And as I fall asleep the cares of this world grow strangely dim.

The first verse on the inside page is this....

This is the verse that sparked the name of my blog. I love this verse because it reminds us of where true joy comes from. God alone gives us joy and it strengthens us. When we go through dark or discouraging times we must remember that Christ alone is our help. That Christ alone gives us strength. Christ alone is our sure foundation! We could all use a little "Joy of the Lord" ....well maybe a LOT of "Joy of the Lord" everyday!
