Put on Your Joy Jacket!

            Have you had your Joy Juice today? Drink up and take a peek inside your closet! Did you have trouble this morning trying to decide what to wear?  Many of us would have to admit that we have stood in our jam-packed closets and uttered the statement:  “I don’t have a thing to wear!”

            Let me tell you a true story that puts this into perspective. My husband and I had the privilege of going on a mission trip to Nicaragua a few years ago.  We visited orphanages that were filled with some of the most grateful, loving, precious children!  They weren’t worried about what they would wear tomorrow….for they only had one change of clothes.  They didn’t need a closet; all their earthy belongings sat on a common shelf beside the pallets they slept on…on the dirt floor.

          You see, we choose to worry and fret over so many unnecessary things…instead of being grateful for what we have and trusting God to supply our needs.

            Jesus reminds us in Matthew 6:28-30: “ And why do you worry about clothes?  See how the lilies of the field grow…  not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field,… will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith!”

            May I suggest that we all step inside our closets for a time of prayer and thanksgiving?  God has supplied…and will continue to give us what we need.  So, put on your JOY JACKET and share this good news with everyone you see!

          Be grateful for God’s generous blessings of joy.
