“Joyful are people of integrity, who follow the instructions of the Lord. Joyful are those who obey his laws and search for him with all their hearts.” – Psalms 119:1-2 NLT
The beautiful thing about joy is that it does not come from what we do or what we have. So often we strive, manipulate, and control to make ourselves feel more happy but joy is deeper than that. Joy is not depended on any person, situation or circumstance in this world. Joy comes from God and we experience it the most when we are in His will. Learn more about experiencing God’s joy in this week’s video “Experiencing the Joy of the Lord.” Enjoy!
Dear Heavenly Father, thank You for the joy that only You offer. I pray for the opportunity to experience your joy every day. In Jesus Christ Name I pray. Amen.
What’s one thing you know for sure God is calling you to do today that can lead to more joy?
