  1. What a delightful hymn–I love it! ‘Though I’m reading this post-Christmas, I can still be joyful in my Savior and worship Him today. P.S. Thank you, Pastor Mike for becoming a follower of my blog, From the Inside Out. I pray you’ll find the posts meaningful whenever you’re able to visit!

  2. Lovely and true. As the letter to the Philippians advises, Joy is a command. I’m re-reading Victor Kuligin’s “Ten Things I Wish Jesus Never Said” and right before I finally got time to read your wonderful post, read from Kuligin: “In Christ this obedience was a joy. Jesus delighted to do the will of the Father. He even likened it to something as life-staining as food.” I am rather recent to the party of realizing joy is a choice, but I’m getting there. Thanks for the guitar chords and piano notes as well. I shall worship today with your hymn.
