Finally, my brothers, rejoice in the Lord! (Philippians 3:1, NIV)

Rejoicing is joy that is dancing.
Rejoicing is faith as it sings.

Every time I turn to You, Lord,
joy rises in me.
You call me to joy.
You call me to be deep-down happy in every situation –
not because the situation is pleasing,
but because You are God and
You are always good.

You want me to rejoice in You!
When I do, I can rejoice always and
with all my heart.

Lord, I rejoice in You this morning
in the face of Satan’s temptations to anxiety and discouragement.
I rejoice that Your work is going forward right now,
in spite of all I see.
Praise to You, my God!

I rejoice that You are faithful to me every moment and that
Your Spirit never leaves me,
not for a second.

I rejoice that my whole family and every person I love is
in Your hands.

And Lord, I rejoice in the privilege of knowing You.
To know You is to trust You.
To trust You is to love You.
And to love You is to take pleasure in You and
rejoice in You continually.

Thank You, my Father!
Thank You for all that You are!

Hymn: Joy in Your Presence

Pictures of God’s Love

Throughout His life and teachings,
Jesus drew a variety of pictures of
the Father’s love.
The most compelling was
His own self-sacrifice.
Set to a familiar tune.

Printed Music

A father runs with streaming tears –
His son, once dead, now lives!
His joyful love gives just a glimpse
Of how our God forgives.

A leper comes back home again,
The lame now leap and dance –
God’s gifts can only start to trace
The deep, divine romance.

His flesh and blood, our bread and wine –
He makes Himself our feast.
In death He serves His life to feed
The meanest and the least.

Discover now by childlike faith
What God delights to show:
A joyful, overflowing love
That every life can know.

All You Are

Lord Almighty,
blessed is the one who trusts in you.
(Psalm 84:12)

Father, so much of my daily life is still untouched by
the truth of all You are.
You are
perfect wisdom,
perfect power, and
perfect love,
yet too often I think and act as if You are
limited and unreliable.

O my Father, I long to live in full response to all You are.
As I worship,
teach me,
remind me,
shape me,
draw me.
Fill my faith with all Your magnificence.

You are the center of all reality.
Everything revolves around You.
May it be so in my life.
Help me see everything—
every resource,
every task,
every problem—
only in relationship to You.

Hymn: High and Holy Sovereign God

Christ in Psalm 3

Christ is
our shield and our salvation
in the face of
evil and all its threats.
To a familiar tune.

Printed Music

Evil opposes You, my Lord,
And those You free from sin.
It sneers and shouts its deadly lies
And whispers here within.

You are my shield, O living Christ,
My truth, my strength, my light,
My joy, my song throughout the day,
My keeper through the night.

I can lie down and safely rest,
Secure in all You are –
Unfailing light when all is dark,
The Bright and Morning Star.

You are salvation, O my God,
Pure love in all You do,
And all are holy, safe, and strong
Who simply trust in You.

God of Endless Abundance

My God will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:19, NASB)

God of endless abundance,
God of glad, unbounded giving,
You have made me
Your child,
Your heir.
I am rich beyond measure
in You.

Father, help me turn my back on everything
that distracts me from You.
Help me flee from
all anxious grasping,
all foolish desires, and
all self-glory.

Instead, help me wholeheartedly embrace
gratitude, and
joyful, self-giving love.

Father, You are the one eternal God.
Help me love You
with all my heart,
with all that I am and
all that I hold.

You are all-in-all.
I am always
complete and
sufficient in You.

Hymn: God Alone

Transfiguration Hymn

This hymn helps
bring home the truth about the
transfiguration of Christ, and
to a familiar tune.

Printed Music

See our Lord in all His glory,
Now arrayed in dazzling white!
See Him shine in holy splendor,
Bathed in everlasting light!
See the law and prophets gather,
Lifting high the Living Christ!
Lifting high the Living Christ!

See the cloud of ancient fire
Guiding through our wilderness.
Hear the voice of God our Father.
Hear the love His words express:
This my Son is pure and pleasing.
Hear the blessing that He brings!
Hear the blessing that He brings!

Jesus Lord, we see Your splendor
Here and now by daily faith.
In our service, in our suffering
We will follow unafraid,
On from glory into glory
Till we see You face to face,
Till we see You face to face.

Today in Your Care

Sovereign God,
You dwell in eternity,
unmoved by time.
Your promises,
Your purposes,
Your burning love are
always now,
always sure,
always undiminished.

I am in Your tender care.
Here in You,
nothing is forgotten,
nothing ignored,
nothing overlooked,
nothing left to chance.
Your purpose is never threatened.
You suffer no surprises and
no setbacks.
You are not bound
by the present or the past,
by norms or impossibilities.

Within me is
weakness, and
But You have hidden me in Yourself.
I am completely,
untouchably safe in You.

The Eternal I AM,
the Source of All,
is my shepherd.
I lack nothing.

Hymn: Be Still, My Child
