The joy of the Lord is our strength and stronghold.
Nehemiah 8:10 Amplified
Should we filter life through a joy perspective. A window viewed through joy. All those million little things we see every day. Should we develop this joy practice may it act as a springboard to breakthrough from all the defences that block us.
Should we view our day with a narrative of joy. Understanding that the feast is always ours in Christ Jesus.
Faith reaches upwards and celebrates His Authority over us. How He cares and loves us. Values who we are. Gifts us with belonging and a true identity. Faith helps us live under the protection and provision of his faithfulness, overarching everything.
Faith takes our hand as we hold the umbrella. We believe and grasp goodness, strength and joy. Continually knowing the one who created us has power that strengthens and flourishes our innermost being.

In whom we have boldness and access with confidence through our faith in Him.
Our narrative of joy is illustrated here by the umbrella. Knowing and trusting by faith we live under the covering of Christ’s Authority. Looking through our window of life leaning into joy.
Life brings its sorrow and petals fall from the favourite roses.
We circle again.
Centre again on life’s source.
Joy comes in the morning.
It’s narrative it’s strength.
