Let the Joy Rise


Live in the light of Love.

(Listen to my song “Let the Joy Rise” by clicking HERE)


Psalm 37:4

Find your delight in the Lord who will give you your heart’s desire.


What is your heart’s desire?

Maybe it is clear to you…but maybe it’s not.

Due to the many mixed messages we’re bombarded with in this world…there is much confusion.

Our culture urges us to grab for power, prestige and possessions. Our egos are drawn to accumulating more and more and more.

Meanwhile…beneath all the world’s noise God is calling us to let go and to love.

This is the path to our heart’s desire.

Try focusing on Jesus.

Try listening to God speak to in scripture.

Set aside time for quieting the mind (contemplative prayer).

Set aside your thoughts and be still.

Be present.

God yearns to commune with you now.

Once we start “delighting” in this loving union with God in each moment…our heart’s desire will emerge.
