The Key to Joy

When you woke up, you chose to lay there five more minutes. Then, you chose to get up. Then, you chose to get to shower, wash your face, brush your teeth (hopefully), get dressed and comb/brush your hair. Some of us chose to eat breakfast. But did you choose JOY? Some days are harder than others, this I do know. But when we discover where our joy comes from, we can embrace it. The key to joy is its source, which is the Lord. When we live in the Lord and allow the Lord to live within us – that is always a reason for joy. We may not be able to rejoice in our circumstances all the time, but we can rejoice in Christ all of the time! In Paul’s letter to the Philippians, he talks about joy and how it is the duty of the Christian to rejoice continually. Paul wrote this letter from prison and he, himself, had joy! Wow! “Rejoice in the LORD always. I will say it again: Rejoice!” (Philippians 4:4)..

    Hi Stacy

    Thanks for the follow *, as the reason I write is to share.
    * (Though my family and close friends say it would be far more entertaining with a video-camera # in “real life”, rather than in cyberspace!)

    # By the way, do they still make them in today’s ever-faster changing world..or is it all done with mobile phones?

    (get with the times now,”luddite”* c – it should be a smart phone)

    * or so I was often called by my “my techno-geek” friend, Bill (“the gonk”)

    “total non-techno” c (who doesn’t possess a mobile phone, after a rather eventful’ experience some years back, whilst trying to walk, talk and chew gum at the same time)

    Who says men can’t multi-task!

    Kind regards
