Seeking Joy ~ Verses



A Simple, Easy, Joy

A simple, easy joy,
a feeling full of bliss
an elation that I feel
a wonder not to miss.

A simple, calming feeling,
a happiness inside me
a serenity deep within
a heart full of glee.

A simple, warming feeling,
a joyfulness all around
a delight in every way
a tranquility to be found.

A simple, easy joy,
a feeling like no other kind,
a gladness when His peace
fills my heart and mind!

The Real Reason . . .



May the blessing of joy abide within you,
and your delight in the Lord be for real
may the happiness that dwells inside
bring others to know His perfect will.

May the blessing of peace rest upon you,
and your tranquility a witness to your belief
may those you greet see the Spirit’s stillness
so they too, will want such a blessed relief.

May the blessing of love flow through you,
and your adoration for God shine bright
may the praise you have be heard by all
so they too, can know of His saving light.

May the blessing of eternal hope fill you,
and your message be loud and clear
may the truth that lives in your heart
bring others to see why Jesus came here.

May joy, peace, and love,
and all the other blessings of the season
be what you share and give to others
and help celebrate Christmas’ true reason!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 7:13-14

“And he said, Hear ye now, O house of David;
Is it a small thing for you to weary men, but
will ye weary my God also?

Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a
sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and
bear a son, and shall call his name
Immanuel.”

Seeking The Lord ~ Verses


Seek first the Kingdom of God,
keep your eyes on the things above
seek God with all your soul
and be filled with His mercy and love.

Seek the Lord with your whole heart,
let your requests be made known
seek after His holy righteousness
and your prayers will reach His throne.

Seek the Lord and do good,
diligently search out His living Word
wait for Him at wisdom’s gate
and He’ll shepherd you into His herd.

Seek the Lord and obey Him,
pursue peace in fairness and truth
seek the same God you have known
from the days of your youth.

Seek to be justified by Christ,
track down His name and His face
seek after His salvation
and you will find His amazing grace.

Seek God for all your strength,
and you will no longer be weak
but first you must remember
to seek . . . seek . . . seek!

Hello


Hello, to all of you who seek the Lord.

Isn’t seeking the Lord exciting? Isn’t something that gives you a warm and cozy feeling? It does me. When I walk away after spending time seeking the Lord, I feel joyful, I feel like the weight of the world has been taking off me. I walk away knowIng  that EVERYTHING is in His control.

One of my favorite Bible verses on seeking the Lord is Psalm 27:8 “When You said, “Seek My face, “My heart said to You, “Your face, LORD, I will seek.”

To seek God’s face, to get a close look at Him and to see who He really is, can only be done when you read and study the Bible. When I do this, I come away with so much more knowledge of His wonder and power and feel so blessed that I have the opportunity to personally know my Lord and Savior.

Won’t you please seek the Lord with me, together we can find out all kinds of new and exciting things!
