Sunday Verses

You will go out in joy and be led forth in peace; the mountains and

hills will burst into song before you, and all the trees of the field will
clap their hands.
Isiah 55:12

Last night was my son's senior prom.  He went with a group of 12 couples, all mostly just friends.  Most of these kids, especially the boys have all been in youth group together for years.  We parents made them dinner, an amazing spread that included prime rib, pasta, salads, cheesecake, and much more.  It was so  fun, the kids had a blast and were full of much joy, as you can see from this enthusiastic picture. Their exuberance and joy spilled over to the stressed out parents.  Just think if each day you were led by joy, joy that made you want to jump, joy that spilled over to those around you, how would your life be different?  I realize there are many things that zap our joy--worries over money, illness, broken relationships.  But my challenge to you this week is to go out in joy and let your actions be led by peace, what could it hurt, right?  Oh, and don't forget to do a little jumping too!

  1. Becky, thank you for the beautiful post. I plan to "go out in joy and let my actions be led by peace." Oh, and I'll not forget to do a little jumping too! Well, maybe that jumping should be in my heart. It's a little hard to get too far off the floor these days.

    Have a God Filled Day
