Celebrate Life
by Sheri Rose Shepherd

The people rejoiced over the offerings, for they had given freely and wholeheartedly to the Lord, and King David was filled with joy. — 1 Chronicles 29:9

I can't imagine anything that would please God more than when we give freely and with our whole heart. If it filled the leader of that day with joy to see the people give wholeheartedly, how much more was God rejoicing in their generosity? Pray for a heart of joy that is generous and you will find something greater... The amazing gift of blessing and grace!

God's Letter to You

I believe if The Lord was going to write you a personal letter about battles this life brings it may read like this....

My Beloved Child,

When you celebrate I celebrate with you. When your heart is full of joy in giving, my heart dances in heaven watching my daughter delight in giving her all. Your heart for me will become contagious and your joy will overflow into the lives of those you love and those that watch you dance through this life with me. Now, my beloved girl, look up to the heavens and live driven by eternity and you will find that your heart will be filled with my spirit. And as I fill you up, you will not be able to help but give away all that I have given to you!

Your Heavenly Father


Dear God,
I lift your precious daughter up before you today and I ask that you would give her so much joy in giving to you. I pray that the way she lives and the way she loves would live on in the hearts of those she loves forever! Amen.

Treasure of Truth

When we give joyfully, we give Joy!
