The joy of the Lord is my strength

Nehemiah 8:10

Then he said to them, “Go your way. Eat the fat and drink sweet wine and send portions to anyone who has nothing ready, for this day is holy to our Lord. And do not be grieved, for the joy of the LORD is your strength.”

In a time of great celebration, after a great time of struggle, this is what the people of God were told to do. I encourage you to choose the same thing! Here is a great old-ish song to make your heart-song this morning as you focus on choosing joy. The lyrics focus on resolution, confidence and assurance that the Lord WILL be your strength, based on the truths we find here — He is my shepherd, He will not allow us to falter, etc. Be strengthened by that, friend!
