The King of Joy

Anyone want a 4 year old today?
Naughty little boy so far.Wednesday he spent half the day.
Singing a little song he made up.
Only one line.
Over and over.
"I am the king of joy."

He is most certainly not.
The King of Joy.
Not right now anyway.
Not ever really.
(Even though it's really cute.
And we are all much happier
when he thinks he's the king of joy.)

But, he is not really the king of joy.
Joy can only come from the Lord.
From His Word.
From a relationship with Him.

My Father is heaven is the King of Joy.

Psalm 16:11
You make known to me the path of life;
You will fill me with joy in Your presence,
with eternal pleasures at Your right hand.I Thessalonians 2:20
Indeed, You are our glory and joy.

Each week Beki at therustedchain hosts Fingerprint Friday and uses a song by Steven Curtis Chapman as a springboard. Join in. It's a great way to be reminded of God's presence.

Love this!

That gray house? We almost bought it. We had an offer in on it, and someone came in and outbid us by $1,000.
