A week of short challenges are ahead for us.

2We were filled with laughter, and we sang for joy. And the other nations said, “What amazing things the Lord has done for them.” 3Yes, the Lord has done amazing things for us! What joy!

Psalm 126:2-3

Years ago, I was showing my brother-in-law around the area where we live. At one particular stop in a small town near us, he went in to scope out what the country store offered. When he came out, he said to me, “Well, the joy of the Lord is my strength,” in a very sarcastic tone. I looked at him with a question in my eyes. He noted the woman failed to share the joy of Jesus even though she appeared to be quite religious.

It’s easy to be religious; much more difficult to be amazed by the Lord.

What does your life speak to others? Do you overflow with joy? Do you notice what the Lord has done in your life? Are you filled with laughter?
