JB Shreve is joined by LynnDee Summers on this morning’s pandemic devotional to discuss how gratitude leads to joy. The deliberate decision to express thankfulness to God can transform our internal status during the locked-down, quarantined, stay-in-place, doldrums.

You will show me the way of life, granting me the joy of your presence. Psalm 16:11

The Lord is my strength and shield. I trust him with all my heart. He helps me, and my heart is filled with joy. I burst out in songs of thanksgiving. Psalm 28:7 

Honor and majesty surround him. Strength and joy fill his dwelling. 2 Chronicles 16:27
