Overflowing joy

IMG_5612I have been praying that God would fill me with his joy. I was feeling a little low and just needed to be filled again. He is a good and faithful God and He delivered.

I felt His overwhelming love and joy bubbling up inside of me as I was standing worshiping in church one Friday evening. It was overwhelming but in a good way. I felt as though my burdens had lifted and I was feeling light like a feather.

“Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.  Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.” Matthew 11 v28-30

I felt as though I was released from my worries and responsibilities and given permission to rest and enjoy. To enjoy His presence and His love. To enjoy my simple life and all that it is offering me at this time. His joy is refreshing, it is healing and it is just what my heart and soul needed.

The joy of the Lord is our strength. Now I just need to learn to live from this place.
