THEN SINGS MY SOUL unspeakable

I have JOY UNSPEAKABLE on my mind this weekend, in fact, I will be sharing in Sunday School this Sunday a few thoughts on that subject.

Joy is different than happiness. Happiness waits for things to be exactly the way they should be BEFORE it can be satisfied. Our circumstances can dictate our happiness. JOY, on the other hand does not look upon our situation - it draws from one source....GOD!

To have joy UNSPEAKABLE means that words cannot describe our joy, especially in the midst of trial and tribulation. To have unspeakable joy is to have peace and joy that only comes from the Lord even when you cannot understand it.

THE NEWSBOYS sing a song entitled, JOY. I would like to share the video with you on this THEN SINGS MY SOUL SATURDAY. I pray that if you need peace in your situation, that you will receive joy that is totally unspeakable!

(Please scroll down my side bar and MUTE my blog music, otherwise you will have two songs playing!)

For other worshipful hearts, join AMY over at Signs, Miracles and Wonders for the THEN SINGS MY SOUL SATURDAY postings! Find them HERE.

Laurie, thanks for sharing with us the difference between happiness and joy. Many people tend to think they are the same. But you said it well that JOY does not look upon our situation as it is from God. What a wonderful reminder! Because our joy is in the Lord, therefore we can have peace and joy even in the midst of trials and difficulties. Thank God for giving us joy unspeakable! Thanks for sharing with us. Take care and have a blessed weekends!

Oh no Laurie, You tube wouldn't let me play your video. It says it is no longer available.
I was hoping we were getting the old hymn Joy Unspeakable when I first started reading your post. That's one I sang a lot growing up in a small PH church. Oh the half had never yet been told.
Have a blessed week.

Blessings Laurie...again you minister to me with your words I need this JOY after this week maybe I'm clinging to your words! Well-written!

When I opened your blog David's song JUST AS I AM started and I listened to that one instead
of NEWSBOYS...JOY :( I think I needed the song that played! Thank you so much! Actually, I thought I was listening to the video until I realized it wasn't moving. (lol)

I really need help...O Lord, pray for me. I loved the song of JOY!
May HIS JOY reign in you as it strengthens me & restores me to some sanity & rest! God's peace, joy and love be with you & yours!
