Sweet Fragrance of His Joy

            Have you had your Joy Juicetoday?  You don’t have to wait until a special occasion to drink in the joy of the Lord!

             Many of us have received beautiful arrangements of flowers for special occasions!  It could be a birthday, anniversary…maybe Valentine’s Day when someone special sends flowers to brighten our day.  Flowers are a comfort during sadness like a time of loss or sickness; and they can help us to celebrate happy times.   Flowers….like our faith…can lift us up and remind us of God’s love.

            Let’s strive to be authentic in our faith, so that when those times of temptation or testing come---we can make wise, Godly choices.  We want to avoid the traps that Satan sets for us and be able to stand strong in the Lord.  As Nehemiah 8:10 says: “May the joy of the Lord be our strength”. 

            May our hearts’ desire be: to grow into thriving, joy-filled Christians who bloom where -ever we are planted.  May we become bouquets of His love that will attract others to our Creator. Let’s live expectantly….looking for the many wildflowers of joy that God has planted along our path.  May each of us aim toward an authentic, genuine Christian “walk” that matches the “talk” that comes from our lips and hearts of joy.

            2 Corinthians 2:14:    “But thanks be to God, who always leads us in triumphal procession in Christ and through us spreads everywhere the fragrance of the knowledge of him.”

Don’t wait for a special occasion to enjoy the sweet fragrance of His joy.
