Through His Great and
precious promises,
God generously sprinkles
His seeds of joy in our hearts.
Yet too often we reap a
harvest of misery.
Joy's seed
requires furrows of faith,
sprouts in the rich soil of trust,
is nourished by daily
soaking in God's Word,
blossoms in eager response to
His love,
grows strong through
winds of adversity,
and bears fruit only as we
stay rooted in obedience to
Christ's commands.
God's joy
and the stubborn seed of
self-pity
cannot survive in the same garden!
