Stuffed or Starving?

            Have you had your Joy Juice today?  You can never be too filled or too stuffed with God’s joy!

            Do you believe that someone can be too joyful?  Now, I’m not referring to being giddy and silly; or boisterous and obnoxious with laughter.  I’m talking about being so filled with joy from the Lord that joy seems to overflow from our hearts into the lives of others. There are times when we truly are “stuffed to overflowing” with God’s joyful blessings.

            Then, there are times that it seems God has forgotten us.  Maybe we are waiting on an answer to a prayer that we’ve prayed for a long, long time….we may feel like we are starving for His favor. Do we give up? Do we take matters into our own hands and try to MAKE our own joy?

            What one may see as defeat, another may view as a challenge.  What one person may perceive as God’s lack of love, another believer may acknowledge as an opportunity to grow and learn.

            Our question today is this: “Which are you?  Stuffed or Starving?” Do you see your situation as a “lack of His blessings”?  In another words: Are you starving for His joy? Or are you filled (stuffed) with God’s love and joy because you whole-heartedly believe the truth of Romans 8:28:

“ And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”

            I'm hoping and praying that we will focus on the faithfulness of God and the abundance of His joy which is available to us all.
