I thought these verses were fitting at the end of this advent week focusing on joy.
1 Chronicles 16:32-34 says,
32 Let the sea resound, and all that is in it;
let the fields be jubilant, and everything in them!
33 Then the trees of the forest will sing,
they will sing for joy before the LORD,
for he comes to judge the earth.
34 Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good;
his love endures forever.
I want to spend some time thanking the Lord with joy for what He has done in our lives this past week.
♫ Praise Him for restoration and healing of relationships! He has worked tremendously over the past week to restore some broken relationships in our lives.
♫ Praise Him for my wonderful husband who loves his family and wants to spend time with us. He has been bugging me to go with him to Emily's basketball practice on Thursday nights for the past few weeks and I finally did it tonight. I'm so glad, because he really wanted to spend time talking with me and catching up.
♫ I praise Him for the ministry He has given me with the children and women at church. I love every aspect of what I do there! I am preparing for the Christmas program on Sunday and putting together Christmas baskets, as well as putting together a Christmas eve service. It makes my life hectic, but I wouldn't change a thing.
♫ Praise Him for allowing us to work with Nathan through a rough patch at school this week and continuing to help him as he learns to relate to his peers in a positive way. I'm learning to deal with these issues without getting so anxious or at least staying anxious!
What do you have to sing about this week?
