Have you had your Joy Juice today? Let’s open the eyes of our heart to see joy in even the ordinary things.
Children are masters at finding JOY! When our grandchildren come to visit, my husband and I are reminded of how special the simple pleasures of life can be. Through their eyes we see wonder in simple things …..like picking wild flowers, watching the busy ants as they work, chasing butterflies! We find ourselves joining in the spontaneous laughter that adults usually think is silly and …childish! These little bundles of energy are pretty good at pointing out the joy in ordinary things . And their joy is contagious! Simple joy….that’s the best kind! Don't you agree?
We need to slow down and realize that it’s against the backdrop of “ordinary” that God’s work becomes “extraordinary”. When we see God’s touch on everything, we will experience His JOY in a much deeper, more meaningful way.
In John 10:10, Jesus said: “I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.” Abundant life, friend, is God’s plan for us. Let's accept each new day as the gift He intends it to be, and find JOY beyond measure….in even the small, simple things of our ordinary day.
Drink in the joy of Jesus and look at life with a new perspective. Your ordinary day may just turn into an extraordinarily JOYful one!
