WORD WEDNESDAY - Joy Comes in the Morning
My Word of the Year for 2016 is JOY! Each week I will share in a "Word Wednesday" post as I discover the JOY in my life - and yours! Please join me during this year-long journey...
Nobody is "UP" all the time; we can't constantly be "JOYFUL", can we?
There will be days - perhaps many days - when we just don't have "the joy joy joy down in (our) heart"!
We may have concerns on our mind; finances, health, loved-ones in crisis, our future...many things that may have us worrying over, and making it harder to find Joy.
Even things we over-hear in the news can cause worry...things that are so far out of our control that there is absolutely nothing we can do!
God tells us not to worry:
But...well, that's easier said than done, isn't it? And, is that a guarantee that our worries will magically go away and our Joy will return?
I don't really know the answer; but what I do know is that God tells us to leave all of our worries with Him because he can and will lift our burdens! And with our burdens lifted...
It will be much easier to find our joy!
So, as we lie down at night with hearts full of burdens, lift our prayers to God and know that...
Praying you find your joy!
