Continuing from Sunday, September 9, 2018, in our final post of this series, let us see how Jesus responded to the questions on 'seasons', as He teaches in stories or parables that those with open hearts would understand. [Continuing from May 6, 20; June 3, 17; July 1, 15, 29, 2018; August 12, 26, 2018; September 9, 23, 2018, our Sunday Series].
September 23, 2018 Post 11, Why Drink the Old When You can Drink the New? Encouragement 5
Let me leave you with some Holy Bible Passages to hide in your heart for the future. [John 14:26]
Good Morning my Beloved Friends. Continuing our 'Sunday Series' from our first introductory post, May 6, 2018, and our 'Mothers' Day Card, May 13, 208, today, May 20, 2018. let's see what 'Our Master, Jesus' had to say about 'seasons', and other areas of the 'Holy Bible'.
'For everything there is a season, a time for every activity under heaven' [Ecclesiastes 3:1].
Every year the world goes through seasons. Some more dramatic than others. Our lives mimic these patterns; we too pass through seasons.
But change is not always easy, especially when it means a transition into difficulty or the unknown. Further, it can be 'harder' when we 'try' to 'live the Christian Life', including changes, in our own strength.
SO THEN, since at times life gets a little rough, and we all need a bit of joy in our lives. Let's find some in 'the Word'. We often talk about warnings that come from the Bible, how to live or not live our lives. However, sometimes we forget that the Bible also tells us to enjoy life a little bit. God did not mean for us to be sad or serious all the time. He tells us to get out and have a little fun.
Here are some happy Bible verses to add sunshine to what might be a gloomy day.
According to the Holy Bible - Finding Joy and Rejoicing audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
We often take joy for granted when we should regard it as a gift. [Galatians 5:20-23; James 1:17] In the Bible, just like in life, joy sometimes came from the really big things and sometimes just a small thing like a kind word or a helping hand brought such happiness that it filled the heart. The Bible reminds us that we need to rejoice in those times, thanking God for the happiness filling us.
Psalm 27:6 - "Then my head will be exalted above the enemies who surround me; at his tabernacle will I sacrifice with shouts of joy; I will sing and make music to the LORD." (NIV)
Psalm 97:11-12 - "Light is shed upon the righteous and joy on the upright in heart. Rejoice in the LORD, you who are righteous, and praise his holy name." (NIV)
Psalm 118:24 - "This is the day the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it." (NIV)
Then, there are the 'difficult' times. Thus, Holy Scripture Verses - Finding Joy in Dark Moments
Joy isn't always in the big things, and often we need to find joy in the darkest of times.
Joy isn't a bad thing in the dark. It keeps us from getting bitter and keeps our hearts whole. Even when it feels like we shouldn't, it's okay to let joy in.
Proverbs 15:13 - "A happy heart makes the face cheerful, but heartache crushes the spirit." (NIV)
Proverbs 15:23 - "A man finds joy in giving an apt reply - and how good is a timely word!" (NIV)
Proverbs 17:22 - "A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones." (NIV)
Isaiah 35:10 - "Those who have been ransomed by the Lord will return. They will enter Jerusalem singing, crowned with everlasting joy. Sorrow and mourning will disappear, and they will be filled with joy and gladness." (NLT)
Isaiah 55:12 - "You will go out in joy and be led forth in peace; the mountains and hills will burst into song before you, and all the trees of the field will clap their hands." (NIV)
Nehemiah 8:10 - "Nehemiah said, 'Go and enjoy choice food and sweet drinks, and send some to those who have nothing prepared. This day is sacred to our Lord. Do not grieve, for the joy of the LORD is your strength.'" (NIV)
John 16:22 - "You are now very sad. But later I will see you, and you will be so happy that no one will be able to change the way you feel." (CEV)
These 'truths' are more IMPERATIVE NOW, 'than when we first believed'...'for the night is far spent, the day is at hand...' [Romans 13:8-14]. Otherwise, any of us will definitely be greatly deceived in these 'latter days of the last days'. For, REAL. [Acts 17:11; 2 Timothy 3:1; Hebrews 1:2; 2 Peter 3:3] Amen. Amen.
