Joy In The Unexpected

“Lord, I thank you for the honor of knowing Someone who blesses me in so many ways, in so many unexpected places, during so many unexpected times in my life.    And today, Father, should I not so naturally discover ‘a joy piece’ within, I ask that You in your faithfulness would turn my heart your way to see You as I should. In Jesus’ Name, Amen!”

Joy In The Unexpected – Reflections 

Sometimes it just happens: 

In the most unexpected ways,
At entirely unexpected moments,
We take joy in the moment…

And acknowledge within the amazing part God has played in the process.  

We realize more of his working,
Appreciate his graciousness to us,
And rejoice when we do.  

The “size” doesn’t matter.  It’s not the size: it’s the fact.  The fact that it does happen and we recognize the reality of the Lord in one more unique way.  

A Prayer For The Day…

 Reflecting On Scripture

The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and I am helped. My heart leaps for joy and I will give thanks to him in song. (Psalm 27:7)**

Following about a three year search for God, Lee trusted Christ as Savior in 1967 as young Marine. He has served as an outreach pastor and a church planter. The Lord also led him to serve as the Director of Internships at Baptist Bible Seminary in Clarks Summit, PA where he served for over 20 years. Lee loves to write, has a strong desire to be a positive influence for Christ in our world, and is passionate about family. And speaking of family, he and his wife Sherry (who served as a Director of Elementary Education for many years and recently retired) praise the Lord for being married 44 years, their 3 daughters and son-laws, and 7 grandchildren! Lee and Sherry would say: "We've been abundantly blessed."
