Reading these word the other day really compelled me to pray for this kind of sincerity:
There are many who say, "Who will show us some good? Lift up the light of your face upon us, O Lord!"
But You have put more joy in my heart than they have when their grain and wine abound.
Despite circumstances, comforts, and my perception of financial stability, I long for the Lord to put his JOY in my heart. It can transcend everything else.
Kristian wrote a great article recently on ways for us to give more, even in times that feel less financially unstable.
Happy Second Sunday of Advent.
