The LORD is my strength and my defense ;

he has become my salvation.

~Psalm 118:14~

 

 

 

Read the Bible in 2020 – March 30

  • Deuteronomy 13:1-15:23
  • Luke 8:40-9:6
  • Psalm 71:1-24
  • Proverbs 12:5-7

 

Today’s song to focus on is “The Joy of the Lord is My Strength”.

The Joy Of The LORD Is My Strength
The joy of the LORD is my strength
The joy of the LORD is my strength
The joy of the LORD is my strength
The joy of the LORD is my strength

He heals the broken-hearted and they cry no more
He heals the broken-hearted and they cry no more
He heals the broken-hearted and they cry no more
The joy of the LORD is my strength!

He gives me living water and I thirst no more
He gives me living water and I thirst no more
He gives me living water and I thirst no more
The joy of the LORD is my strength!

He fills my soul with laughter
Ha, ha, ha … ha, ha (ha ha)
He fills my soul with laughter
Ha, ha, ha … ha, ha (ha ha)
The joy of the LORD is my strength!

If you want joy you must ask for it
If you want joy you must ask for it
If you want joy you must ask for it
The joy of the LORD is my strength!

10 Then he said unto them, Go your way, eat the fat, and drink the sweet, and send portions unto them for whom nothing is prepared: for this day is holy unto our Lord: neither be ye sorry; for the joy of the Lord is your strength.

Nehemiah 8:10 KJV

 

How many of our children learned this in choir or junior church?  Did they learn it from us or us from them?

Find strength in the Lord!

 

 

Thanks to churches for finding ways to help us stay connected during this time.  There’s a wealth of online services to watch.

 

 

 

Pray for nursing home residents and workers who seem to be sitting targets for the coronavirus.

 

 

 

Pray for healthcare workers who are doing their best to help those who are ill.  I’m amazed and touched by the extent the families of healthcare workers have stepped up to care for children in the family and for workers who are dedicated to caring for patients while someone else takes care of their children.

 

 

 

Pray for truck drivers, daily farmers, police, pastors, store clerks, etc. who must continue their work that benefits the rest of us.

 

 

 

Our days of staying home have been extended to April 30th by President Trump.  We must all stay home to stop the spread of Covid-19!  The sooner everyone follows the rules, the sooner this will be over!
