Rooted in Christ, Joyful in Relationship, on the Move in Inner Growth.

The Joy of the Lord

“The choir sings; on a mauve wall Rembrandt’s Christ breaks the bread, Communion, and the words of Teresa of Avila play in my head, a beckoning refrain;

Just these two words He spoke,

changed my life,


What a burden I thought I was to carry!

(A cross, as did HE).

LOVE once said to me, ‘I know a song,

Would you like to hear it?’

And laughter came from every brick in the street

and from every pore in the sky,

After a night of prayer, HE

changed my life when

HE sang,

‘Enjoy ME’.

That’s His song!  ‘I rejoice in you. Come rejoice in ME.’  The song that plays the world awake,  the song that fuels joy;  “Enjoy ME! Enjoy ME!”

Is there a greater way to love the Giver than to delight wildly in His gifts?”

pp. 218, 219 from “One Thousand Gifts” by Ann Voskamp
