The Joy of the Lord is Powerful!

Have you had your Joy Juice today?  People that have a steady diet of Joy Juice are much healthier…so drink up!

                It has been documented that people who laugh a lot and have a positive, JOYful attitude, live longer than those who don’t.  Researchers tell us that our physical, spiritual and emotional health varies according to the amount of laughter in our lives!  I guess we could say that laughter is a “tranquilizer with no side effects”…a multivitamin chocked full of benefits!  

                Nehemiah 8:10 tells us that “The JOY of the Lord is your strength”!  His JOY in us will produce His strength through us. “A life without joy is like a car without shock absorbers,” writes Mary Southerland. “It will be jolted by every bump in the road.  Laughter and JOY are the shock absorbers of life and can radically change our perspective and the tough times life holds.”

                Christian friends are a great source of JOY and strength! Because of our common love for the Lord and for each other, we can face the tough days, as well as the good ones.  We can laugh together, cry together, pray together, support one another….and experience a JOY beyond description because it is from Him.  Indeed, “the JOY of the Lord is our strength!”

              Be someone’s path to joy in Jesus!
