Joy

"You don't have to spend another day of your life just hoping to find joy, like it's a lottery prize that only a few lucky people win."

Joyce Meyer

This was in my mailbox today when I got home. What a huge reminder. Actually a slap in the face. Joy. It seems like a hard thing to get a hold of for most people including myself. It seems weird to think about happiness like this, but it is a choice. You can choose to be happy or you can choose to be miserable. 

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.

Galatians 5: 22-23

Joy is a fruit of the spirit. It is there. If you are connected to Jesus you can have it in your life. You can be joyful! You have to make the choice to demonstrate it though. In every situation. In every battle. In every storm. In every bad day. The choice is yours.

Thanks so much for reading! I pray an increase of joy in your life today!!!!!
