Day 70

JOY

 

  "The joy of the Lord
is your strength."
Nehemiah 8:10

FROM THE FATHER'S HEART
My child, the world has enough sadness. One of the reasons I have filled you with Myself is so you can spread a little joy into My world. Not just a temporary fix for the moment, but a deep down, in your heart kind of joy. You won't find it anywhere else. And My joy will lighten your load and strengthen your weary heart. Others will see it—and want the Jesus in you, too.

A GRATEFUL RESPONSE
Circumstances threaten my emotions until I realize You are the source of my joy, Lord. No matter what is happening around me or to me, You fill me up with an inner contentment that energizes me for every task. I thank You that You came so that I could have joy.

SIMPLE TRUTH

Joy is contagious. Spread some around today.
