What Happened to the Joy?

Lord Jesus,

It seems that the daily circumstances of life often come like thieves that break into the home of my life and steal away my sense of joy in you. Yet I know that I unwittingly allow this to happen because I fail to secure the doors of my mind and the windows of my heart.

Lord, you promised that your joy would be in me and my joy would be complete. At the moment, any sense of joy is incomplete and I am unfulfilled in my deepest being without your joy because the joy of the Lord is my strength.

So I open my heart today and I ask you to come and re-furnish my life with your joy - that deep inner security and rest that invades life's circumstances and transforms them rather than being victimized by them.
