2 Samuel 17.2
I'll come on him when he's bone tired and take him by complete surprise.
may we always guard our joy in you, lord. may we always make your joy our strength. may we always recognize that whatever is going on around us is beyond our control, but what is going on inside of us is something we can run to you for, something we can take your joy to be our strength for. we are helpless without your joy, but with your joy we can take on anything. your goodness goes beyond everything we will ever encounter, and we know that your joy will give us strength for the impossible.
