Joy

"I have entered His gates with Thanksgiving in my heart. I have entered His courts with praise. I will say this is the day that the Lord hath made and I will rejoice for He hath made me glad". Sunday dad preached on having Joy. I began to remember mom singing a song "He gives you joy, real joy, wonderful joy. Just let Jesus come into your heart". Then I remembered the scripture,

The Joy of the Lord is my strength
— Neh 8:10b

I was also remembering Paul with all of his sufferings and things he went through, He said, "I count it all joy that I might know Him, the True God". Cheryl was singing a song that said "Your joy, your peace, you give to me". Then the thought came to me that this is a free gift from God. Everything that we search for in the world system to give us some kind of joy, we have to pay for, just to see it come up short of what we expected. There is a place where you can find an endless supply of joy, one that never runs out. It doesn't cost you anything. All you have to do is want it, above all else. You may even find that it's  looking for you.  For what "comes out" from you will not return unto you void. It will accomplish that that it sets out to do. God bless.
