Joy in His Presence {Bible Art Journaling}

Bible Art Ps 16-11 JOY

Psalm 16:11 (KJV) - "Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore."

This, my main journaling Bible is KJV, although I usually study from NIV or NASB or ESV. This Bible, with black leather binding, has 11-point font and 2.5 inch margins. That makes it easy for me to read and yet allows plenty of space in the margins for art.

I love all three parts of this verse:

1-He will show me the path of life.
2-In His presence is JOY.
3-At His right hand, there are pleasures always.

Why do I need to be reminded about the JOY that comes from being in His presence. So often I allow the stresses and worries of daily life to block out the joy. Maybe that means I am not putting myself totally in His presence. I’m not allowing His presence to fill me. Hmmm.

Very pretty, as usual. :) We were just listening to my 4 year old's veggie tales cd today, singing "I've Got The Joy, Joy, Joy..." I love that song. Joy is something we don't see much anymore. It's really a special thing, isn't it?
