There are too many Christians,
with long and mopey faces
who go around as if . . .
they don’t know about God’s graces.
When you meet them on the street,
they are always looking down
they walk as if . . .
they don’t carry God’s joy around.
Their smiles are thin and forced,
their eyes are dull and gray
their faces look as if . . .
they haven’t rejoiced a single day.
When you sit and talk to them,
their voices are low and depressed
they speak as if . . .
their happiness has been suppressed.
They can’t seem to understand,
the joy that you feel
they think as if . . .
you took some kind of a happy pill.
But as Christians ~ we’re to be joyful,
no matter what comes our way
for we know there are no “ifs” about
the One who strengthens us each day!
King James Version
“For the joy of the Lord is your strength.”
Deborah Ann Belka
