JoyWhat makes you joyful? As we go through our thoughts, we may think of things like our homes, our careers, or our prized Apple gadgets. But joy goes beyond the physical manifestations of good, of course. How wonderfully joy-filled does our time with family and friends - perhaps doing absolutely nothing but sitting and chatting - mean to us?
How holy and precious is sitting and petting a sleeping dog or cat in our laps? How soul-satisfying is it to read a brilliantly written book for hours? How beyond blissful is it to have a quiet and deeply peaceful meditation time? Right now, come up with ten blessings in your life that give you great joy; give thanks to your Creator for these and more coming into your life today.
Affirm: I AM joyfully and eternally grateful for God's unending good pouring into my life.
