JOY

Arise [from the depression and prostration in which circumstances have kept you—rise to a new life]! Shine (be radiant with the glory of the Lord), for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you!
Isaiah 60:1

What a wonderful day we had at our ladies luncheon and Bible study at the women's shelter. Some of the ladies in our group are beauticians and offer free haircuts, facials, manicures, etc. to some precious ones who are struggling financially. We have met several times now, and today, it seemed that the ladies opened up more. They were sharing their testimonies, playing the keyboard, painting the beauticians' fingernails, and praying for us. One lady who had been "hard to get to know", gave her heart to the Lord today! Hallelujah! The kingdom of God really is righteousness, peace, and JOY!

What a great version of that verse. I have a friend who fights depression. I can't wait to send this to her.

Thanks! My motto for life is "I choose JOY"
