I was recently introduced to a Joy that I had never witnessed before.  Maybe I seen glimpses of it in my child’s laugh on Christmas morning, saying “I Do” to my husband and when the doctor told me my child had been healed but they could not explain it.  Those were all Joy moments but because of the busyness of life, they flee.  I was blessed to experience a people that possess this Joy in their everyday life, in their worship and in their dance.  Psalm 126:3 says “The lord has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy.  Psalm 100:1 says “Shout for joy to the lord, all the earth.”  Psalm 81:1 says “Sing for joy to God our strength.”  I let the cares of this world affect my joy. I allow the pressures of my career dictate my joy.  I hand over my joy when I have not realized daily, that “the lord has done great things for us!”  I silent the joy of God when I don’t “shout for joy to the lord!”  I weaken myself when I don’t “Sing for Joy to God our strength.”  Jesus, you are the giver of all Joy. I choose this day to walk in this Joy. Help me to not let the cares of this world steal my Joy.  I want to be Joy.  I want Joy to spill out of me.  I want Joy to overtake me.  Thank you God for showing me a people who walk in your Joy!  Thank you for showing me despite the situation, food supply, money supply, and circumstances, you can walk in constant Joy.
