FIND THE JOY. WHERE IS YOUR JOY, JOY, BE JOYFUL, BE JOLLY…
Words many people ask. But Finding and seeking all of the above can be easy but it can also require strength, Faith and hope.
It can be so easy to be joyful. But at times Joy can be clouded by what is surrounding you, therefore always keep in mind that Joy is a decision. Choosing Joy is a Sacrifice. Choosing joy goes much deeper than just having a happy day because things are going well. Choosing joy is deeply rooted in our faith, hope and trust in God. Choosing Joy also requires looking less at ourselves and more to others…Choosing Joy requires for us to take our eyes off ourselves and to look to God and others instead, it requires us to count our blessing rather than count our misfortunes or burdens. it requires selfless love and action.
No matter what comes your way today and every day moving forward choose JOY today. Choose to focus on your many wonderful blessings and sing praises unto God. Choose to keep our eyes fixed on God. May the joy of The Lord always be your strength, and May his peace continually be your portion.
Proverbs 17:22 A joyful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones. Therefore when troubles of any kind come your way, consider it an opportunity for great joy. For you know that when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow. James 1:2-3
Tell yourself each day these famous words…”J.O.Y = Jesus 1st, Others 2nd, Yourself last.”
