You have filled my heart with greater joy.
From the heart (the very center of the Spirit) springs emotions, thoughts, motivations, courage, and action. It is “the wellspring of life” (Proverbs 4:23). God provides peaceful rest for these who are anxious in spirit, safety for those in harms way.
From my joy I choose to laugh, love, learn; live. I choose to accept this gift of joy that God promises me. He promises peace without anxiety. He can and does bless with gifts of rest. I am no longer anxious or afraid (Psalm 27:1).
Lord, use me in my insecurities and weaknesses. Help me to become strong through them and lift others up. Lord, be glorified in my every action. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
