Let the Joy Rise


We are all immersed in Amazing Grace.

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


Luke 12:6-7

“Are not five sparrows sold for two small coins? Yet not one of them has escaped the notice of God. Even the hairs of your head have all been counted. Do not be afraid. You are worth more than many sparrows.”


“I’m not good enough.”

If you’ve ever felt that way…you are not alone.

This is a common feeling that stems from a culture that espouses perfection and being “number one” as the goal.

It is also a lie…because you are good enough.

You are more than good enough.

You are eternally loved just as you are.

Trying to prove you are worthy of attention or love is a human game.

God showers you with love no matter what you do. There are no conditions.

Look at the beauty of creation.

It is one of the many unmerited gifts to each of us.

Jesus says that five sparrows might not be given much value by human beings…but they are treasured by God.

And we are treasured many times more.

So…what is there to fear?

Rejoice and be glad!
