A Springtime Song of Joy


            Have you had your Joy Juice today?  Drink in the freshness of a new season. And enjoy a  Springtime melody brought to us by our feathered friends!  

                Spring is a time of refreshment and renewal.  Flowers start blooming, the grass begins to turn green,  and one of my favorite joy-blessings is the matchless music of the songbirds welcoming each new day.  Nothing is quite as peaceful and refreshing….. It’s as if the birds are praising God in their own unique language.

                Did you awaken with a song of joy in your heart?  At times we find ourselves burdened and overwhelmed with our circumstances.  Maybe you have a heavy heart today.  If so, let’s be reminded that we don’t have to wait until everything is “good” in our lives to praise our good God!   We can choose to “practice joy” even when our hearts are aching. This takes a lot of faith and the determination to find JOY in all situations.   

                As we enjoy a new Spring season, maybe it’s time that we open up the windows of our hearts and let in the fresh cleansing power of the Holy Spirit.  Let’s allow Him to wash away the dirt and grime that has accumulated in our hearts, and give us a fresh start.  The writer of Psalm 33:3 challenges us: 

 “Sing to him a new song; and shout for joy.”

           May each of us find our “new song” of joy that God wants to place in each of our hearts.
