Joy: Strength Determined by Foundation

Joy: Strength Determined by FoundationThe Lord is my strength and my shield; in him my heart trusts, and I am helped; my heart exults, and with my song I give thanks to him. (Psalm 28:7 ESV)


Spring blooms take away winter’s gloom. Could it be this easy- a change of season to remove gloom? Gloom, despair and agony on me…who wants to keep living under such a negative spirit? Loved a worship song yesterday morning…we were singing…dig for the joy, dig for the joy. I was like- wow! Yes, we have to lower ourselves, kneeling before Jesus, surrendering all coming against our ability to live life to the fullest.


The joy of the Lord is our strength. If we do not function with joy, we lack strength. Imagine joy being a cement wall prohibiting satan’s arrows from attacking. That’s the strength projected when we find true joy. This has been talked about often…joy is not happiness, it’s not an emotion. Joy is the rebar in our cement foundation, solidifying who we are in Christ.


Foundations created will determine how well we hold up to challenges presented in this world. We will have times when left weak. God promises when we are weak, He is strong. That is…if He is our foundation. As we build on our solid foundation, knowledge is gained, faith grows, wisdom and understanding lend to helping discern truth from deception.


Many lines have been blurred causing societal confusion. Only now it’s not only in our society, it’s in many churches. Good news! If we seek, we will find a Bible believing church, standing in love, sharing Biblical Truth. Deepening Word knowledge, will work out reasons for gloom, and spring forth blooms.


It’s Motivating Monday! Choices, choices, choices…it’s our choice type of foundation we build. I’m recommending one that will never fail. Reading a Bible is not near as hard as many experience. Ask Jesus to help understand scriptures, it’s vital to understanding. I ask every time. There may be more God wants revealed. Let’s be motivated to ask Jesus for help when needed. We’re not expected to know everything. It’s ok for others to be higher on learning curve. Keep seeking, digging for joy- finding strength like never before. We trust, He helps, giving thanks with a grateful heart.

Be encouraged!
