"Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord rises upon you." NIV
"Arise, shine; for thy light has come, and the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee." KJV
Do people out in the world look at us and say,'What an exuberant people, we want whatever it is that makes them so joyous.' If not, where is our first love? What has darkened our spirit? If people are envious of our radiance and joy, we have kindled our faith and allowed the Holy Spirit to flow though us.
Heavenly Father, forgive us if we have allowed our joy to slowly drain from us since the day You saved us. Refresh us with the indwelling of the Holy Spirit so that we may walk in joy and excitement each day. We pray in Jesus' name, Amen.
