Joy from God

[slideshare id=31459158&doc=joyslideshow-140220184933-phpapp01]

God wants us to live a joyful life. A life in which you want to sing and praise Him everyday.

Although, joy so intense you think your heart will burst can only last for a short time, the memory gives you a rush of happiness you can relive many times throughout the day.

In this slide show, I tell you about one technique I use to open my heart to that awesome joy God can give us.

Do you have a way you connect to God’s joy? If so, please tell me about it. I like trying new ways to strengthen my relationship with God.

If you don’t have a special technique, why not try mine? Remember, it may take several times before you feel anything. If you want to open your heart to His gift of joy, you might need to do this for a few nights.

Let me know how it works for you. You can leave a comment below or send me an email. I want to know if it works for others as well as it works for me.

Worship is an intimate experience between you and God.

Shout to the Lord

Psalm 100:1-2 Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth. Worship the Lord with gladness; come before him with joyful songs.

The Bible teaches us that worship is our way to give thanks and praise to God.  It is an important part of our relationship with Him. Worship can be both public and private, and everyone has their own way to worship. We can worship God through song, dance, lifting our hands, or any number of other ways.  No matter how we express our worship, God receives it and loves it.

We are called

I love the beckoning sound of church bells on Sunday morning. Occasiionally, there is a lull in the traffic and I am able to hear the bells joyful song. Unfortunately, the noises of the city often drown it out. These same noises can also overpower God’s beckoning call if we don’t search for a lull in our lives.

I have added a poem to my Poetry page. It is entitled Beckoning and is about both church bells and God’s voice beckoning us to action.
