Confessions for Joy

I renounce a spirit of heaviness and put on the garment of praise so that He may be glorified.

I will bless the Lord at all times, His praise shall continually be in my mouth. The joy of the Lord is my strength. Jesus bore my grief.

This is the day that the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it. I rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory. I rejoice in the Lord always. I do all things without grumbling and complaining. His words were found and I ate them and they became unto me a joy and a delight to my heart. In spite of trials, I offer sacrifices of joy. I will sing, yes, I will sing praises unto the Lord. I have the high praises of God in my throat and a two-edged sword in my hand.

I have set the Lord always before me. Because He is at my right hand, I shall not be moved. Therefore, my heart is glad and my soul rejoices. My body also dwells secure. Thou dost show me the path of life. In Thy presence there is fullness of joy. At Thy right hand are pleasures forevermore. I will rejoice in the Lord; I will rejoice in the God of my salvation.

I wait upon the Lord and He renews my strength. I will mount up with wings like eagles, I will run and not be weary, I will walk and not faint.
