Jar · Joy · Strength · Surprising

joy in being a jar…

“…for the joy of the Lord is your strength.”

Nehemiah 8:10 ESV

The emptying of self… being available to be filled with His will… to be a jar for Him… brings joy… at His joy…

I feel it as I sit… still doing next things… after the most recent last things…

jar joy

A fullness of heart… a strength to keep going with all the next things of the day… surprises as it rises in my spirit…

I wonder at the feeling… just want to rest in it… recognizing His presence… His joy… at my willingness to keep going…

Yet I know it’s not me… who keeps me going… it’s all Him…

There is great humility… and blessing… in recognizing… His… joy… which strengthens…

Amen…
