But let all who take refuge in you be glad; let them ever sing for joy. Spread your protection over them, that those who love your name may rejoice in you.
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.
The king rejoices in your strength, Lord. How great is his joy in the victories you give!
Surely you have granted him unending blessings and made him glad with the joy of your presence.
The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and he helps me. My heart leaps for joy, and with my song I praise him.
Satisfy us in the morning with your unfailing love, that we may sing for joy and be glad all our days.
Unless the Lord had given me help,
I would soon have dwelt in the silence of death.
When I said, “My foot is slipping,”
your unfailing love, Lord, supported me.
When anxiety was great within me,
your consolation brought me joy.
Thank you for reading along these past 31 days, may you go forth in Joy!
to draw further in: Psalms of Joy; listed above are 5:11, 16:11, 21:1, 21:6, 28:7, 90:14, and 94:17-19
Melony, I spent the past few days catching up on your 31 days series. You have told a beautiful story – it is raw, fresh and from the heart – where the best writing lives.
