Giving Thanks for Jesus in Me

“Living within you is the Christ who floods you with the expectation of glory! This mystery of Christ, embedded within us, becomes a heavenly treasure chest of hope filled with the riches of glory for his people, and God wants everyone to know it!” Colossians 1:27 TPT
“Let joy be your continual feast. Make your life a prayer. And in the midst of everything be always giving thanks, for this is God’s perfect plan for you in Christ Jesus.” 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 TPT

A meditation to rejoice in the function of every part of your body and Jesus’ Presence there. It is important if you are sick or disabled in any way, not to focus on the sickness or what you don’t have, but focus on what part of that is working and is functioning and give thanks for that.

Jesus:
Receive My joy producing grace

Make you joyful through and through

Once you thought you were alone
With no one truly by your side
Thought there was no one you could trust
To be your life‘s true guide

Now we are always together
Bound by My Spirit as One

Receive My joy producing grace
Let it cascade over you
Fill you up to overflowing

So you need never be afraid

Receive My joy producing grace

Joined to yours so we are One
So you can know Us intimately
Hear My voice, live in My love

Receive My joy producing grace
Let it cascade over you
Fill you up to overflowing
Make you joyful through and through

Once you thought you were powerless
To affect the world for better

My love, peace and joy
Filled you up to overflowing
For I’ve overcome the world!

Receive My joy producing grace
Let it cascade over you
Fill you up to overflowing
Make you joyful through and through

My love and peace and joy
And overcome what troubles you
My powerful grace employ

This world to be like heaven
Bring in My rule of love and peace
With joy the world re-creating

Receive My joy producing grace
Let it cascade over you
Fill you up to overflowing
Make you joyful through and through

Experience The Joy

So will you also pass through a time of intense sorrow when I am taken from you, but you will see me again! And then your hearts will burst with joy, with no one being able to take it from you! For here is eternal truth: When that time comes you won’t need to ask me for anything, but instead you will go directly to the Father and ask him for anything you desire and he will give it to you, because of your relationship with me. Until now you’ve not been bold enough to ask the Father for a single thing in my name, but now you can ask, and keep on asking him! And you can be sure that you’ll receive what you ask for, and your joy will have no limits! John 16:22-24 TPT

Jesus:

Face to face
Is your inheritance
And your new place
The joy of speaking to the Father
Directly like a Son
Is your new life
All heaven’s blessings, your home

Of living in My Glory
Filling you daily
For it will make you holy
So enamoured with God
You’ll never want to leave His side
So sure of HIs love
That in Him you will abide

The joy of knowing Me
Face to face
Is your inheritance
And your new place
The joy of speaking to the Father
Directly like a Son
Is your new life
All heaven’s blessings, your home

Experience the joy
Of living with me daily
Your heart, body and spirit
Filled with My Spirit
My joy in our unity
Flowing into you
My joy in your presence
Filling you through and through

And your new place
The joy of speaking to the Father
Directly like a Son
Is your new life
All heaven’s blessings, your home

Of being wrapped in love’s embrace
As We fill You and surround you
Make you our living space
We live in you and you in us
As your dwelling place
We are your fortress and your shield
Your source of empowering Grace 

The joy of knowing Me
Face to face
Is your inheritance
And your new place
The joy of speaking to the Father
Directly like a Son
Is your new life
All heaven’s blessings, your home

Overflowing Joy

“So you must remain in life-union with me, for I remain in life-union with you. For as a branch severed from the vine will not bear fruit, so your life will be fruitless unless you live your life intimately joined to mine.
My purpose for telling you these things is so that the joy that I experience will fill your hearts with overflowing gladness!” John 15:4, 11 TPT

Jesus:
Know My love
The Joy I have in you
Now we are one
Overflows your heart too
My heart and your heart
In unity
Together in love
For eternity

The joy I had
In planning your birth
Into this world
Onto this earth
Knowing who you would be
And what you would do
Planning to save you
Make you joyful too

The joy that took me
From heaven to earth
To be born as a child
A human birth
Leaving all of heaven’s
Power and glory
To reach out to you
Become part of your story

Know My love
The Joy I have in you
Now we are one
Overflows your heart too
My heart and your heart
In unity
Together in love
For eternity

The joy I had
In walking this earth
Loving others
As God’s true Son
Bringing hope and forgiveness
Healing and freedom
Heaven coming to earth
So you could come to heaven

The joy that kept me
Through trial and whipping
Kept me walking
To my crucifixion
Kept me nailed to the cross
As your sins I carried
Kept me trusting God
Even when I died

Know My love
The Joy I have in you
Now we are one
Overflows your heart too
My heart and your heart
In unity
Together in love
For eternity

The joy that raised me
From the dead
To live again
And reign at God’s side
With you beside me
Freed from sin
To be a Son of God
And with me One

Joy through sorrow and loss
Joy in the victory
That I gained for you and I
On calvary
All heaven’s blessings
Flowing in and through you
For what’s mine is now yours
We are one eternally

Know My love
The Joy I have in you
Now we are one
Overflows your heart too
My heart and your heart
In unity
Together in love
For eternity

I Will Fill You

“Looking intently at his followers, Jesus began his sermon. “How enriched you become when you are poor, for you will experience the reality of God’s kingdom realm. “How filled you become when you are consumed with hunger and desire, for you will be completely satisfied. “How content you become when you weep with complete brokenness, for you will laugh with unrestrained joy. “How favored you become when you are hated, excommunicated, or slandered, or when your name is spoken of as evil because of your love for me, the Son of Man. “I promise you that as you experience these things, you will celebrate and dance with overflowing joy. And the heavenly reward of your faith will be abundant, because you are being treated the same way as your forefathers the prophets.” Luke 6:20-23 TPT

Jesus:
When you can see you’re poverty
Really know that all you need is Me
There you will find My Kingdom’s provision
And receive all the glory of heaven

When your hunger and desire
Is not fulfilled with this world’s power
But leads you to call out to Me
I will fill you, be all you need

When you weep in brokenness
I will not leave you in distress
Your life’s broken pieces I will restore
To a laughter filled vessel overflowing with joy

When you are hated, slandered or rejected
Because your love for Me has been detected
I will bring you to My celebration
Where you can dance with joy, have rewards abundant

All of this life’s trials and needs
Are there to help you find life in Me
To know Our joy filled union eternally
And live in My Kingdom’s fullness and Glory

Drink Deeply

“Listen to my testimony: I cried to God in my distress and he answered me. He freed me from all my fears! Gaze upon him, join your life with his, and joy will come. Your faces will glisten with glory. You’ll never wear that shame-face again. Drink deeply of the pleasures of this God. Experience for yourself the joyous mercies he gives to all who turn to hide themselves in him.” Psalms 34:4-5, 8 TPT

Papa God:

For they were placed there just for you

I know of your distress
Heard you cry out to me
And I have answered with My Presence
So your joy can be complete

Overflowing from My Presence
Till we are One in our delight
Rejoicing in each other’s essence

Of My love for you
Drink deeply of it’s pleasures
For they were placed there just for you

The mercies I have given you
The freedom to be with Me
And know me through and through

Of My love for you
Drink deeply of it’s pleasures
For they were placed there just for you

Let Me be Your fortress
Let My love be your shield
And My joy your strength

Of My love for you
Drink deeply of it’s pleasures
For they were placed there just for you

Uncontained Joy

“The Lord alone is our radiant hope and we trust in him with all our hearts. His wrap-around presence will strengthen us. As we trust, we rejoice with an uncontained joy flowing from Yahweh!” Psalms 33:20-21 TPT

Lord you are my radiant hope
I trust in You with all my heart

You wrap me in your Presence
I am surrounded by your love
You are with me day and night
You are my hiding place, my might.

Lord you are my radiant hope
I trust in You with all my heart

Your Presence strengthens me
So I can stand against my foes
You are my victory
As your essence in me flows

Lord you are my radiant hope
I trust in You with all my heart

As I learn to trust in You
Learn to rest in your Presence
And abide in Your embrace
Your joy becomes my essence

Lord you are my radiant hope

The uncontained joy
That You have in my salvation
Flows freely into me
Becoming my joy and my passion

Lord you are my radiant hope

You Wrap Me In Your Glory

“Then he broke through and transformed all my wailing into a whirling dance of ecstatic praise! He has torn the veil and lifted from me the sad heaviness of mourning. He wrapped me in the glory garments of gladness. How could I be silent when it’s time to praise you? Now my heart sings out loud, bursting with joy— a bliss inside that keeps me singing, “I can never thank you enough!”” Psalms 30:11-12 TPT

In Your Presence Lord
Sadness cannot linger
Grief loses it’s hold
For Your Glory is greater
For

You wrap me in Your Glory
Your garment of gladness
In Your Presence is pure joy
And with praise I embrace it!

There are many ways
In which this world brings me sorrow
Man’s inhumanity to man
Cast’s a gloomy shadow
But

You wrap me in Your Glory
Your garment of gladness
In Your Presence is pure joy
And with praise I embrace it!

There are days of grief
Where sorrow could overwhelm me
Friends or family lost
Dreams and hopes come to zero
But

You wrap me in Your Glory
Your garment of gladness
In Your Presence is pure joy
And with praise I embrace it!

There are days of sickness
Where I cannot see the light
My hope for tomorrow
Obscured in the fight
But

You wrap me in Your Glory
Your garment of gladness
In Your Presence is pure joy
And with praise I embrace it!

In all of my troubles
Your Presence never leaves me
You are my hiding place
Where I find hope and healing
For

You wrap me in Your Glory
Your garment of gladness
In Your Presence is pure joy
And with praise I embrace it!

I want to take this gift
Of Your glory and gladness
And live in it always
Rejoicing in Your Presence
For

You wrap me in Your Glory
Your garment of gladness
In Your Presence is pure joy
And with praise I embrace it!

I can never thank You
Thank You enough!
I can never thank You
Thank You enough!

I Am Here

“Because you are close to me and always available, my confidence will never be shaken, for I experience your wrap-around presence every moment. My heart and soul explode with joy—full of glory! Even my body will rest confident and secure. For you bring me a continual revelation of resurrection life, the path to the bliss that brings me face-to-face with you.” Psalms 16:8-9, 11 TPT

Jesus:
I Am here with you always
You’re in My wrap around Presence
Take My joy in our unity
And let it be your life’s essence

Receive the flow of revelation
Of My resurrection life
Filling your body
Raising you to My side

It was My delight in you
My joy in your presence
That kept me going through the cross
So we could be co-resurrected

It’s My desire and My delight
To raise you to My Kingdom’s height
To be one with you forever
My heart’s desire and My brother

Let the joy that I sing
Over you each day
Be your heart’s song
As you go on your way

With joy I embrace you
Fill your life with My grace
That you might see the love I have for you
Written on My face

Embrace My Glory that will fill
Your heart and soul with joy
As you experience My Presence
And rest confident, secure
