MAD About Joy???

Your outlook affects your outcome.

– John Paul Warren –

 

Is there anyone out there who can argue with the words quoted here from Warren?  Surely not, however it is equally true that most of us do not live by this same wisdom.  Okay, not every moment of every day, but admit it.  When you express a “fine, I give up” mentality, you bring your own day down AND the day of all who are near you as well. 

Reflect Joy!

Did you know that the word joy appears in the Bible 187 times?   Clearly, dear Christians, there is a message to us in this fact alone.  Joy changes things.  Joy comes from deep within and it is not dependant on circumstance – it CREATES circumstance!  How?  Where does this joy come from?  Here is my source, and yours as well if you choose:

Nehemiah 8:10

 10Then he said unto them, Go your way, eat the fat, and drink the sweet, and send portions unto them for whom nothing is prepared: for this day is holy unto our LORD: neither be ye sorry; for the joy of the LORD is your strength.

    I can never “enjoy” this verse enough–I love it–JOY is so important, and it IS a Choice. Thanks, Martha–love, sis Caddy
