Follow Me: Joy

     The wonder of Jesus brings the greatest joy. All other expressions of happiness are fleeting.The joy of the Lord is a way of life, not a momentary feeling. We do not experience joy by trying to be more joyful or happy, but by reveling and meditating on what Christ has done for us on the cross.  C.S.Lewis called joy, an "unsatisfied desire which is itself more desirable than any other satisfaction. Joy must be sharply distinguished both from happiness and from pleasure." Lewis found joy because he found God as its source. Joy is a by-product of life with God, therefore it must be given by God.

     What is the source of joy in your life and how often are you satisfied by its effects?  Do you Need more joy in your life?  Then proclaim its power to satisfy you in the trials of your life. "The joy of the Lord is my strength."  NEH. 8:10
