Messy Christianity – Overwhelming Joy

Joy in Adolescence (8), Perspectives

Verse                                                                                       April 23, 2017

Pastor Todd Harker

Scripture Emphasis:

Psalm 47:1 “Clap your hands, all you nations; shout to God with cries of joy.”

There is a very old song that says, “Praise Him in the morning when you see the sun arising…Praising Him in the evening cause He took you through the day…and in the in between when you feel the pressure burning tell Him that you love Him cause He promises to stay.”  Another internal joy inhibiter is stingy praise.  It truly impacts us in many ways.

When I am Stingy in my Praise….
