God calls us to rejoice. But there are so many things that would rob us of that joy: circumstances, legalism, or just the need to feel we are respectable. I am not talking of an endless, mindless happy, but a deep seated rejoicing in who God is and what He has done for us, despite what is going on around us.
Help us to have Your joy. A joy that brings us through difficulties and puts life in perspective. Help us not be so distracted by what we are doing and what is going on around us that we lose sight of You. Help us to remember the big picture, in relation to which the troubles of the moment are just a passing incident.
In Jesus' Name,
