[For those who don't know, that's Evan in the picture, my son. Here, he's eating a chocolate cookie. He's the most joyful person I know!]
Are you? Am I?
Why be joyful?
“Make a joyful noise unto God, all ye lands” (Psalm 66:1).
“Sing aloud unto God our strength: make a joyful noise unto the God of Jacob” (Psalm 81:1).
“O come, let us sing unto the LORD: let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation” (Psalm 95:1).
“With trumpets and sound of cornet make a joyful noise before the LORD, the King” (Psalm 98:6).
“Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all ye lands” (Psalm 100:1).
Oh. Okay. No excuse. I know better.
So, why do I struggle so?
