Do not allow yourself to be robbed of my joy
My joy is truly your strength.
The joy that I give lies deep within
And withstands the trials and tests in your life.
You may not feel like laughing
But down deep inside
There is still peace and joy
When in me you abide.
You are trees of righteousness planted by me.
I have planted you into my Kingdom of Light.
You will bear fruit in season for me –
In season and out of season
For my former rain and latter rain
Are being poured out together this season my people.
Know that you are to be fruitful for me
In these latter days.
Rejoice in me and allow my joy to flow through you.
Regardless of circumstances, count it all joy.
I endured much for the joy that was set before me.
May you too know the joy that is set before you.
