Don’t be sad, because the joy from the Lord is your strength! ~ Nehemiah 8:10b (CEB)

I pray that God, the source of hope, will fill you completely with joy and peace because you trust in him. ~ Romans 15:13a (NLT)

The Lord is the source of maximum joy.
God, your joy is my strength. Forgive me for taking shortcuts and trying to find joy in superficial ways. Strengthen my faith so that I can trust you to take on more joy-producing challenges. Your joy will become the source of greater strength. Amen.
