I desire my joy to be your strength
Day by day – day by day.
“Rejoice in the Lord always
And again I say – Rejoice!”
I desire my peace to surround you
Regardless of any turmoil or circumstances
That are around you.
My peace and love and joy are my fruit
Which you are to enjoy.
Whenever in doubt, ask of me.
I will reveal to you more of me.
You have been born in my image.
I am in you and you are in me.
All of my attributes are to grow in you.
You may feel that this is impossible –
That this is too “way out” –
Yet my people, this is what I am doing in you.
“Rejoice I say – Rejoice!”
For I will complete the work I have started in you.
It is for you to come to that place where you can say:
“It is no longer I who live
But Christ who lives in me
And the life I now live, I live
By faith in the Son of God
Who loved me and gave himself for me.”
You are my Lord
You are my King
You are my “Everything!”
