Insight by t
Where does our strength come from? It comes from the Joy of the Lord.
Our call to love and worship God is for one reason, so that we can be filled with the joy of the Lord. And so that we will be a joy and a blessing to those in our life.
From the joy of the Lord comes the power to live life to the fullest! Joy endows you with the power to work hard, play hard, and to love harder. All this flows naturally out of a heart that loves God.
