Psalm 51:12 “Restore to me the joy of your salvation.”

It’s Saturday night and I am enjoying a cup of coffee and thinking about tomorrow, the day of the Annual Meeting of our congregation, Christ Lutheran Church. And I have a huge smile on my face, and my heart is filled with joy.

Some might ask, what gives? Aren’t you nervous and apprehensive about tomorrow? Maybe a little. We all face big days and important events, but losing sleep doesn’t seem like a good idea to me right now.

What helps me is to focus and reflect on God’s Word. So I am thinking about one of my favorite verses, “restore to me the joy of my salvation”.

Jesus gives us all salvation and the gift of joy. Nothing can take that from us. Rest in God’s love and mercy. Rejoice in your Savior Jesus Christ.
