The Lord is Near....A Joyful Truth!

             Have you had your Joy Juice today?  Be prepared by drinking a healthy portion!

            Our new year is “off and running”!  Regardless of what was accomplished in 2015, we can look forward with hope that this new year will bring lots of joyful blessings.

            All of us would hope that 2016 will be overflowing with nothing BUT sweet blessings: good health, happiness, 12 months free from major problems.  But the reality of life is that there will be challenges along our path.  We may have setbacks and disappointments….physically, emotionally, financially.   But do you agree with me even in the midst of “reality” we can still find joy?

            As we are often reminded, joy and happiness are not the same.  We’re not happy when that painful circumstance comes into our lives.  The loss of a loved one, the diagnosis of a disease, the end of a relationship, financial struggles…these are not happy times.  But a relationship with the Lord produces joy because…as Psalm 145:18 & 20 reminds us 

 18 The LORD is near to all who call on him,
       to all who call on him in truth.

  20 The LORD watches over all who love him,
             Regardless of what this year holds, our Lord is near and HE LOVES US! We must remember to call on Him and trust that He will answer.

            Drink your Joy Juice as a reminder that the Lord is near and ready to carry you through this New Year.
