The Joy That Comes From God...

The Joy That Comes From God...


God gives me strength
through his joy.
His word in my life
I daily employ.

His joy brings sweetness
to my very soul,
giving comfort no matter
where I may go.

His joy gives contentment
this world could never give.
It sustains me every day that I live.

In his joy... I will most
certainly delight
For he is with me
every day and night.

From everything evil...
may I daily abstain,
living in the joy of Jesus’
precious name.

For in Jesus, my joy is now complete.
As I leave my burdens

at his feet.

And over life’s trials,
I’ll rise above.
Resting in God’s mercy,
his joy, and his love.

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
