USCCB - (NAB) - December 13, 2009
"Fear not, O Zion, be not discouraged!
The LORD, your God, is in your midst,
a mighty savior;
he will rejoice over you with gladness,
and renew you in his love,
he will sing joyfully because of you,
as one sings at festivals."
What an amazing picture this paints...the Lord singing for joy on our behalf. Woohooo. On this Gaudete Sunday, what if we change our perspective a little bit. Instead of focusing on our own JOY, or lack of it. What if we put the focus on how much the Lord loves us and how happy we make Him. Then go ahead and spread it around to others.
Who knows maybe you'll even be captured by joy. God bless!
