Psalm 5:11-12 NIV
 But let all who take refuge in you be glad; let them ever sing for joy. Spread your protection over them, that those who love your name may rejoice in you.  Surely, Lord, you bless the righteous; you surround them with your favour as with a shield.
Isn’t it good that God talks so much about joy and rejoicing – to live for God is not the dullest way but the most joyful! It may be stormy but his presence is there in the storm and that is what makes the difference!
Lord, let us find your joy and gladness as we take refuge in you today.
