I hear the Lord say this day, ‘I come to realign your gaze and I come to restore your joy.’
Many of you have been in a season where you have been tossed back and forth by the wind and storms of life. You have found day to day life a struggle and have lost your joy in the journey. This day the Lord says, ‘I am still here, I have not left you alone and I want to walk you through this season and release my joy in the process.’
Your eyes have been on the storm and all that surrounds you, choose this day to lift your eyes above the waves and fix your gaze on Him. As you gaze upon Him, begin to release your prayers of thanks. Just open your mouth and begin to thank Him for who He is; thank Him for the little things in your life as well as the big things. As you fix your eyes on Him and start to release prayers of gratitude, your thankfulness will just begin to flow. This is a choice and an act of the will: choose well.
As you position yourself in a place of thankfulness, watch and see your joy begin to bubble forth. The more you thank, the more joy will be released in your life!
Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name.
You make known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand.
