God's Joy = Strength

            Have you had your Joy Juice today?  Too busy to slow down and drink it in?  NO ONE should be too busy to gulp down a nice serving of God’s JOY! It’s guaranteed to fill you with renewed strength and energy!

            Take a private survey today and keep a mental tally of how many people look weary or speak of being tired.  It seems that a large portion of the people we come into contact with throughout our day indicate that their “wagon is draggin’’!  And you may be one of them!

            Sometimes we are physically drained because of how much we try to pack into our day! Other times we don’t take care of ourselves and don’t eat right or get enough sleep.  Emotional stress causes us to feel tired, too.  But have you ever considered that fatigue may be brought on by the way we choose to think, talk, and act toward others?

            The Holy Spirit will fill us with His power, if we sincerely ask…but not to be mean, selfish or hateful toward others. His strength is given for good….to be kind and helpful, encouraging and edifying to others.  He will equip us with what we need to accomplish His plan. 

            So when you begin to feel spiritually draggy and you need some “pep in your step”, proclaim the truth of Philippians 4:13: I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”

            Drink your special serving of JOY in the Lord and be strengthened with His power!
