The joy of the Lord is my strength. Nehemiah 8:10
by VANESSA WHITE
Your presence is sweet, it’s where my heart and all of its cares flee and You engulf me with a love and sweetness to my soul.
My soul, my spirit longs to be with You.
Your love surrounds us like the most precious healing balm that drips sweet honey.
In Your presence I never want to leave. I just want to stay and abide, and remain.
Your love pushes out all the lies, all the problems, all the chaos of this world.
In Your presence there is peace and fullness of joy. All my heartache melts away.
Your love engulfs my broken-heart, You tenderly lift my burdens and replace them with Your everlasting Joy.
Your love is tender and it’s gentle and yet it’s lavish. You reveal Your heart to us, for You are meek and lowly in heart. You are a shelter of rest for our weary souls.
You are full of grace and truth. You are love poured out, full of richness, full of delight, full of tender mercies. You are God with us. You are an unshakable foundation.
Engulf me in Your meekness, place me in Your heart, seal me with Your love. Wash me clean with the holiness of Your love.
Jesus says; “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.” Matthew 11:29
Restore to us the Father’s joy, deliver us. We give our hearts to You.
The joy of the Lord is my strength.
