This morning as I am studying and praying, the thought of joy came into my mind. So often, we think we will find joy when this happens or that happens when it is available right here and now. Nothing has to change humanly to feel joy! There are many fundamentalist religions that preach joy will come in the hereafter or here later, so isn’t that world thought? That does not have to be that way; in fact, the reality is that there is always something to be joyful about now. Gratitude is riches, complaint is poverty.
“The meek also shall increase their joy in the Lord, and the poor among men shall rejoice in the Holy One of Israel.” Isaiah 29:19
