Climbing Rainbows

"Whenever the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and all the living creatures of every kind on the earth." -Genesis 9:16

Formula for Joy

Joy is not something we can make on our own, but is a gift from the Holy Spirit. We should turn to Him when we need joy instead of somehow trying to work up joy in ourselves.

Formula for Joy

There is no secret formula
That I can use to make some joy;
I can’t run to the grocery store
To pick and choose which type I want—

It’s when the Spirit shines on me
That joy comes flowing through my life;
It’s love that sets my heart ablaze
Its power showing to the world—

So shine on me, bright Sun of life,
So I can burn with joyful fire,
And when the trials come my way
I will but learn to shine the more.
