I DO NOT CEASE TO BE JOYFUL

by

by Osundara Mayuri

I am a beautiful person.

I am fearfully and wonderfully made. (Psalm 139:14)

I am an oak of righteousness,

All because of the Lord who comforts me. (Isaiah 49:13)

He has given me beauty for ashes,

The oil of joy for mourning,

The garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness. (Isaiah 61:3)

All that I do prospers,

Like the tree planted by the rivers of water

That brings forth its fruit in its season. (Psalm 1:3)

I am the redeemed from the hand of my enemy.

I am the forgiven and the restored.

I am the justified and I have an inheritance,

The riches of glory that strengthens me. (Ephesians 3:16)

I am rooted in love, the fruit of His spirit.

I am free from fear and worry.

Casting all my cares on the Lord who comforts me.

He who is faithful and supplies all my needs. (Phillipians 4:19)

His mercy endures forever and His spirit of truth dwells in me.

I was once alone, a caged bird,

A mess of a life, a wounded soul.

Confused about who I am.

The Lord who comforts heard my cry

in the wilderness of my misunderstanding and

made light to shine on my ways. (Job 22:28)

I am the beloved.

I am the confident, my heart is fixed. (Psalm 108:1)

I sing with praise to the Lord who comforts me,

He who delivered me from discontent and desolate places.

I do not cease to give thanks.

I do not cease to exhalt Him.

My soul shall make its boast in the Lord. (Psalm 34:2)

I do not cease to be joyful.

“The Lord has comforted His people and will have mercy on

His afflicted.” (Isaiah 49:13)
