Joy in Jesus





For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life....John 3:16 KJV.


Thank you, Father!



Bless that Wonderful Name of Jesus!  



     Sister, did you know that the King of Kings is your brother?:

He replied,' My mother and brothers are those who hear God's word and put it into practice.'....Luke 8:21 NIV.


     And that you are his sister?:

For whoever does the will of my Father in heaven is my brother and sister and mother.........Matthew 12:50 NIV.

For whoever does the will of God is My brother and My sister and mother.....Mark 3:35 NKJV.


     Did you know the the Lord of Lords is your friend?:

I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master's business.  Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you.....John 15:15 NIV.

Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends......John 15:13 KJV.


     Do you know that He is your Father?:

And he said unto her, Daughter, thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace, and be whole of thy plague....Mark 5:34 KJV.


     Whenever I read those scriptures, I am struck by how awesome they are.  How great is our God!  How deep is his love and caring for us!  Thank you Jesus.


Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you.  I do not give to you as the world gives.  Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid......John 14:27 NIV.

Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.  Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart; and ye shall find rest unto your souls.  For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light....Matthew 11:28-30 KJV.

    Hallelujah!  Jesus will lift your heart!  He will give you peace and joy!


    Sister, whenever I need a little lift, I have a secret home remedy.  I just put some old-fashioned gospel music on the stereo and sing and dance along.  We praise and worship Jesus through song, and praise songs fill us with joy and gratitude for His grace.  Even the titles are uplifting:  I'll Fly Away, I've Got a Mansion Just Over the Hilltop, The Old Rugged Cross, There is a River, Give Me Oil for My Lamp (keep me burnin'), Bless That Wonderful Name of Jesus, I Go to the Rock, O Happy Day, I Shall Not be Moved, Caught Up to Meet Him.....

     I believe that 'There is Power, power, wonder-working power, in the Blood of the Lamb.' I have felt that power in my own life!

     I know for a fact that 'Because He Lives, I Can Face Tomorrow, because He lives, all fear is gone'!  (Bill & Gloria Gaither)  The Gaithers' Homecoming videos and CDs are some of my very favorites- they are so uplifting, worshipful, and joyful.

     Sister, if you need a quick pick-me-up, get some good old-fashioned, hand-clappin' church music and put it on your stereo.  Raise your hands to your Lord and praise Him!  Sing and dance to Him!

You will go out in joy and be led forth in peace; the mountains and hills will burst into song before you, and all the trees of the field will clap their hands.....Isaiah 55:12 NIV.

Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth, burst into jubilant song with  music; make music to the Lord with the harp, with the harp and the sound of singing, with trumpets and the blast of the ram's horn- shout for  joy before the Lord, the King...Psalm 98:4-6 NIV.

Let them praise his name with dancing and make music to him with tambourine and harp.  For the Lord takes delight in his people; he crowns the humble with salvation.  Let the saints rejoice in this honor and sing for joy on their beds....Psalm 149 4-5 NIV.

Just A Closer Walk With Thee


I am weak, but Thou art strong;

Jesus, keep me from all wrong.

I'll be satisfied as long

As I walk, let me walk close to Thee.

Just a closer walk with Thee;

Grant it , Jesus, is my plea.

Daily walking close to Thee,

Let it Be, dear Lord, let it be.


     Praise God- if we have Jesus in our lives, we don't need anything else.  If we have Him, we have everything!


Hallelujah and Glory to God!  We exalt you, Jesus.  Thank you, Lord.  You are worthy of all honor and praise.  We love you, Jesus!

A link back to this site is our only requirement. Please contact us for any commercial or other use. All e-mails, letters, and other correspondence become the property of Luke 17:3 Ministries, Inc. Due to the large volume of e-mails, we're sorry that we are unable to personally answer every one, but we do lift everyone who writes to us in prayer to the Lord.
The Lord specifically called Sister Renee to minister to Adult Children, not their parents, estranged siblings or friends, abusive or abused spouses, or victims of other types of abuse, although what we write here can often be meaningful for those folks as well. Because of this, our ministry and website have a narrow focus which we will not be changing. We simply can't cover everything. In addition, it is not our purpose to help you re-establish contact with someone who felt it was necessary to cut you off for the sake of their own well-being. We do not keep a list of resources for estranged parents or any other type of abuse and suggest if you are sincerely interested in making amends with an estranged relative, you do an internet search for a website or group that will be more relevant to you. If you cannot find a group or site that you can relate to, we suggest you start your own, and bless other people in your position as well as find support for your personal issues. 
For Adult Children and others as well, please understand that we cannot give you personal advice concerning your particular family relationships.  We are not therapists or lawyers, we usually do not have enough information to form an opinion, and time does not permit us to give enough thought to each person's individual situation to do it justice. If you need personal advice, we urge you to contact the appropriate professional, depending on the problem you have- your minister, therapist, attorney, police department, local domestic violence hotline, etc. In reading this site, you acknowledge that nothing you might read here qualifies as or substitutes for professional advice. Please note we cannot recommend or refer you to a counselor and we do not have a list of therapists or recovery groups in your area. The only Counselor we recommend is the Holy Ghost, and we encourage you to read the Bible and learn for yourself what the Lord says about the issues we write about.
Our articles are strictly our personal opinions and testimonies and are not intended to give or offer any advice. All who access this site do so with the understanding that we are NOT professional counselors and we strongly recommend that you discuss your individual situation with your pastor or therapist and pray for the Lord's guidance before acting on anything we write on this site. Unfortunately, the abuse we discuss is all too common, inflicted on countless victims by countless perpetrators. All names and identifying details in our articles have been changed to protect the innocent as well as the guilty. Any resemblance to a real person or persons whom you might know is strictly coincidental.
