In the midst of the storm,
The joy of the Lord becomes your refuge where you not only survive the storm,
But thrive through the storm.
In the face of adversity,
The joy of the Lord gives you courage to look past your circumstances,
And see the goodness of God.
In the fight of your life,
The Joy of the Lord reveals your inner champion to not accept defeat,
But triumph in the victory of God!
In times of weakness,
The joy of the Lord gives you strength to draw from your well of praise,
And claim power in Jesus’ name!
In moments of uncertainty,
The joy of the Lord gives you confidence that no matter what comes next,
Nothing can separate you from the Love of God!
In life every day,
The joy of the Lord extends far beyond the good times,
To a lasting assurance for all times.
