Reading: Psalm 126
A song of ascents.
1 When the Lord restored the fortunes of Zion,
Contagious Joy | Marianne Toovey
God has done such amazing things for His people that they just couldn’t help but be filled with joy! So much so, in fact, that even those around them could see what God had done in their lives. All because of joy!
I love the word joy. It’s so much more powerful than just plain, old “happy.” And I find that even though this year has been the hardest of my life, I found more joy than ever before. God has done some pretty amazing things in me, and I just hope it shows to the people around me! He’s filled me with joy and I just can’t hide it!
Dear God, You are amazing! Thank You for all the wonderful things You’ve done in my life this year. I pray that the joy You’ve given me is contagious and that people will have to look at me and say, “the Lord has done great things for her.” I love You! In Jesus’ name, Amen.
