Filled with Joy!

Wednesday, August 20, 2014

"We also pray that you will be strengthened with all His glorious power so you will have all the endurance and patience you need.  May you be filled with joy."  Colossians 1:11

Thank you, Jesus, for supplying us with strength!  During our time of waiting, you have given us endurance that we couldn't have had without you.  Sometimes we felt impatient, but now, we realize that even in that, you were teaching us how to persevere.  Each step of the way, when we were uncertain or even experiencing trial, you were teaching us something needed for this next season of our life.  Thank you for your comfort and healing.  In you, we find indescribable joy and our hearts are full!  We are praising your name as we step out in faith!  In your holy name, amen.
