Psalm 16:11 (Pt. 2)  Thought/Prayer:  Penned Psalm.  Topics:  2 at end.

“You will show me the path of life. In your presence is fullness of joy. In your right hand there are pleasures forevermore. A Prayer by David.”  (WEB)  (Read this scripture and more at

Let us pen a psalm of joy to the God in whose presence is fullness of joy . . . and who holds pleasures forevermore in His right hand.  Let us join with David in praise.

The fullness of joy in Your presence, Lord:
Who can explain it?
Who can explain exultant beatings of a heart that loves You?
Who can explain emotions welling up, unlike any others?
Who can predict . . . even fathom such filled-up cups, running over?  Spilling over?

Not us, Lord.  We cannot explain.

The pleasures in Your right hand:  Reserved for those who love You. 
Without loving You, we don’t understand Your pleasures.
But when we do love You, Lord, we realize them one by one, and maybe they subtly come to us.
We can even drink from the river of your pleasures (Psalm 36:8).

Forevermore, Lord.  Forever.  Your pleasures are for eternity. 
And we seem to enjoy a taste right here on Earth.  It happens when we sense Your love in and around us.
Thank You for the enjoyable preview of what is to come.

Lord, we have joy in Your presence . . . pleasures never ending.
How can we thank You enough?
We can’t, we know.

But perhaps a few words penned here might in some small way let You know the joy (fullness of it) that we have in You and in the pleasures you hold for us . . . even those we have already begun to enjoy . . . but thinking greatly of the eternal ones to come.

Lord, let us share this with others.  Let us share with those who do not know of all of Your blessed Presence.  Help those who struggle with issues of life, death, and unwanted circumstances to come to know all of the joy and pleasures You have for them.

We pray for them.
This honors You.

Topics:  Hold up in prayer those who need to know of God’s pleasures that come because of His love.
