Overflow with Joy
2 Thessalonians 2:16-17
“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit” (Romans 15:13).
I am a morning person. I love greeting the sunrise and enjoying the sound of the birds waking up. Their songs of praise to their Heavenly Father remind me to praise the Lord for his care of me and my family. Starting the day talking to God helps me to prepare for the busy day ahead. I can’t wait to see what God has planned for me. I am learning to be flexible in my schedule to allow for the unexpected interruptions that God brings into my days. I am amazed at what God does on some days! I want my days to overflow with the joy and peace that I have in him. That joy and peace can only come in complete surrender to the will of God for my life. God is not stingy with his love and mercy. I am the only one who can limit his goodness to me. The Word of God challenges me to live life to the fullest. One of my favorite Bible verses is 2 Thessalonians 2:16-17, “Now may our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and through grace gave us eternal comfort and good hope, comfort your hearts and strengthen them in every good work and word.” I pray that you may know the Giver of Life and experience the inexpressible joy of his presence.
