My dictionary says joy is, "A very happy feeling; great pleasure; delight."
But what happens if joy is more than a feeling? What happens if joy is something that God packs into us when we become His Child? On the same level as love? Eternal life? And all the rest?
Checking in on biblegateway.com it says 'joy' is mentioned 242 times in the Bible!
We possess joy whether we feel like it. Act like it. Or not. We don't need to pursue joy!
"Heart, body, and soul are filled with joy."
~ Psalm 16:9
"For the joy of the Lord is your (my/our) strength."
~ Nehemiah 8:10
"But oh the joys of those who put their trust in Him!
~ Psalm 2:12b
All kinds of 'fruits of the spirit
'love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, and self-control.."
~ Galatians 5:22 & 23
Thank You, God, for Your JOY in each of us today,
whether we feel like it. Act like it.
