Fill my heart with joy
Quoting Charles Spurgeon again: (such a great preacher he was, and a gifted writer). In Morning and Evening he writes:
"The Christian should be like those lovely spring flowers which, when the sun is shining, open their golden cups, as if saying, 'Fill us with thy beams!' but when the sun is hidden behind a cloud, they close their cups and droop their heads. So should the Christian feel the sweet influence of Jesus; Jesus must be his sun, and he must be the flower which yields itself to the Sun of Righteousness."
I'm looking forward to more of the clear days we had on Sunday and Monday here in Vancouver, so I can lift my face up to the sun and say "fill me with your beams." And I will experience the joy that a thankful heart can bring.
But, even if the sun isn't shining on us, Gods light will shine on us when we open ourselves up to Him.
May God bless you all with His beams.
