Have you had your Joy Juice today? Whether the temperature is cold or warm, it’s always the right time for joy in the Lord!
As we bundle up in our layers of clothing to brave the winter temperatures, we may find ourselves looking forward to milder days and warm sunshine. In His infinite wisdom, God created the seasons so that we would appreciate and look forward each new one He gives us.
During these winter months, we can still “rejoice in the Lord”…even when our fingers and toes are cold. The reason: HIS LOVE for us NEVER will grow cold. That truth alone should warm our hearts! Yes, we have imperfections and weaknesses…. we fall in and out of relationship with one another. Our love for other people can grow cold, if we are not careful and attentive. BUT… we can ALWAYS depend on our God to stand firm in His love and to be true to His promises.
Matthew 24:12 – 13 reminds us: “Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, but he who stands firm to the end will be saved.”
Have you seen the plaque with this question: “If you don’t feel as close to God as you once did, guess who moved?” You see, God never moves away from us! But often, we let our busyness, job responsibilities, pleasures….even family, get in the way of our pursuit of a deeper relationship with Him.
Bundle up in His blanket of love today and bask in the warmth of a joyful relationship with Him.
STAY WARM by drinking in the Joy Juice that God has made especially for you.
