Overflow Like A Fountain of Joy!

Have you had your Joy Juice today? Overflow like a fountain, burst forth with joy.
Be a cheerful example to each girl and boy!

That’s a fun way to say: “Be filled with joy in the Lord!” How can we do that?  Oswald Chambers shares his wisdom: He wrote:  

“Have the right relationship with God, finding your joy there, and out of you “will flow rivers of living water” (John 7:38). Be a fountain through which Jesus can pour His “living water.” (I like to call it Joy Juice!)  A person who has the right relationship with God lives a life as natural as breathing wherever he goes. The lives that have been the greatest blessing to you are the lives of those people who themselves were unaware of having been such a blessing.”

            I hope those words touch your heart like they did mine! Indeed, “A cheerful heart is a good medicine!” as Proverbs 17:22 says. Share your joyful heart with others.

Mark Twain said, “To get the full value of joy you must have someone to divide it with.” But let’s remember that just as we have the opportunity to share our joy, we also have the ability to crush someone’s spirit. The end of the verse in Prov. 17:22 says…..”but a crushed spirit dries up the bones!”  Mean words, harsh actions can crush someone. We must always be aware that we leave a mark on every person we meet. Let’s choose to share our joy and leave a good mark. 

                May we strive to overflow like a fountain of pure joy and leave a good mark as we share that joy others.
