A Podcast About Encouragement
Building One Another
Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing. I Thessalonians 5:11
Journey into Joy!
Does your Easter joy translate into daily joy?
Last week I tripped on a hose, discovered I had to redo a job because someone else dropped the ball and I had to dig through ten boxes looking for a missing document.
Have you ever done a joy check? Especially when you are feeling a bit annoyed?
Consider this wonderful word the Apostle Paul writes directly after addressing a disagreement between two people, “Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice.”
The key here is the place of joy is “in the Lord” and not in the circumstances of life.
Do a joy check. Just stop and consider how your spirit is doing and choose joy - in the Lord.
Remember that whatever your circumstances may be, the Lord who loves you is a very present help in time of trouble and loves you more than you love your next breath!
The joy of the Lord is your strength! Nehemiah 8:10
“These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full.” John 15:11
