Jesus Joy

Indubitably the bills are sky high

Lately, it’s been by and by

Yet in still, my hands are raised

Satan still defeated, as I appraised

He bluffs, poker face convincing

Fear, doubt, discouragement dispensing

I got a Hallelujah, anyhow shout

The storm reveals what your heart is about

No longer ashamed, though pockets are empty

Like Paul, I am content, in lack or in plenty

Eye of the tiger determined to give God glory

Ready to witness, fingers testify, share the story

How Jesus came through, miracles  prolific

Despite my bank statement, my faith is terrific

Challenged to my core, clinging to His love

Jesus, the reason for my joy, focused above
