Joy

Proverbs 17 22

 

Verse of the Day:  Proverbs 17:22

A joyful heart is good medicine.

 

Feeling joy in ordinary things isn’t as hard as it seems.  To find joy in your life focus on the good and be grateful for what you have. It’s not happy people who are thankful, it’s thankful people who are happy.   Give thanks to the Lord for in his presence is fullness of joy.

A Heart at Peace

Proverbs 14 30

 

Verse of the Day:        Proverbs 14:30

A heart at peace gives life to the body, but envy rots the bones.

 

When you have a real relationship with God, He changes your heart.  You start to feel freed from anger, worry and envy.  You have peace in your heart and a hope that makes you joyful.  But a person who envies the happiness, prosperity and success of others exhausts your body and soul.  Don’t let envy steal your peace and joy, don’t let it affect your spirit or your health. Trust in the Lord and trust that what is meant for you won’t pass you by.

The Right Path

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 16:11

You make known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand.

 

Until you find the path that God has set for you, you will have a longing to be complete.  The only thing that can fill the emptiness is God.  When you are in his presence you will feel a sense of wholeness and when you are on the path that leads to God, no matter what is going on around you, you are able to feel joy.  How wonderful to be on the path that was laid out for you by God himself, not only in this life but for all eternity.
