A Continual Feast of Joy

                 Have you had your Joy Juice today?  Be sure to have plenty on hand for the feast we’ll be attending.

                You are cordially invited to attend my feast! And I hope I’m invited to yours.  Look at Proverbs 15:15.  This passage tells us: “ …the cheerful heart has a continual feast.” This doesn’t have anything to do with food; but it has everything to do with our continually seeking that JOY of the Lord. 

                When we wake up each morning, we have a choice.  We can choose to start worrying about all that we have to do and what might happen; or we can put our trust in God and ask Him to carry us through our day.  If we choose to rest in Him, then we will be continually filled with His Joy.

                Our attitude affects our whole personality.  We can’t always choose what happens to us, but we can choose our attitude toward each situation.  The secret to a cheerful heart is filling our minds with thoughts that are true, pure and lovely...thoughts that dwell on the good things in life (as Philippians 4:8 teaches).  This was Paul’s secret as he faced trials; and it can be ours as we face the struggles of daily living.   

                Let’s be determined to choose JOY! I’m looking forward to attending your feast…and can’t wait to see you at mine!
