Joy

Are you familiar

with Joy

these days?

 

Is Joy a companion to you?

Or a stranger?

 

Has your Joy been

stolen

snuffed out

fleeting

stifled?

 

Has busyness

or shame

or self-hatred

or the weight of the world

stolen your Joy?

 

Maybe you forgot

about Joy?

 

Who has time for Joy?

 

In God’s presence

there is Fullness

Abundance

Overflowing

Joy

 

More of Him

brings more Joy

and

more contentment

 

You’ve got to have

the Joy-Giver

in your Joy pursuit

 

And if You aren’t finding joy in Him

so many

many

things

will steal your Joy

 

 

Know Him

Praise Him

Be grateful for being ransomed

 

Know Joy

in His presence.

 

– Susie Stewart

 

 

I will shout for joy as I sing Your praises; my soul will celebrate because You have rescued me.

– Psalm 71:23 (VOICE)

 

After grief for sin there should be joy for forgiveness.

– A.W. Pink

 

What I am anxious to see in Christian believers is a beautiful paradox. I want to see in them the joy of finding God while at the same time they are blessedly pursuing Him. I want to see in them the great joy of having God yet always wanting Him.

– A.W. Tozer

 

For the Kingdom of God is not a matter of what we eat or drink, but of living a life of goodness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.

– Romans 14:7 (NLT)

 

This is a good life—my heart is glad, my soul is full of joy, and my body is at rest. Who could want for more?

– Psalm 16:9 (VOICE)

 

Instead, You direct me on the path that leads to a beautiful life. As I walk with You, the pleasures are never-ending, and I know true joy and contentment.

– Psalm 16:11 (VOICE)
