mirror the joy

Joy is at the heart of God. Joy is a command. Joy is strength and its absence will create weakness. God is the happiest being in the universe. And God’s intent was that his creation would mirror his joy.

– John Ortberg

We were meant to mirror His joy.

Joy can be found no matter what your circumstance, because joy is a choice.

Choosing to accept God is for you, even if you can’t see it right now.

Because truth is not related to your perspective. It is solid, dependable and lives forever.

Truth is part of the heart of God.
As is His joy.

God delights in us as His.

And that fact alone should bring you joy.

And if we are being joyful, God is too.

For He loves when His kids appreciate His gifts.

The more we acknowledge and name the gifts He has given and is giving us, the more joy we will experience.

I don’t know about you, but I can use more joy on a daily basis.

If we are experiencing being loved, and keeping track of the blessings God is directing your way, the joy will begin to puddle up, pool together and flow beyond anything you can imagine.

Its time for immeasurable joy.
