I pray you all do a good ol' heart check on yourselves. Asking yourself what kind of good things has God done for you? Then taking a deeper look into your heart and asking if you can find Joy even when facing tough situations and dealing with tragedy? I pray that you can say 'yes'. Joy is the fruit of the Spirit. It is where we can find the gift of peace and find goodness along with practicing patience. It's reflecting God's Faithfulness and finding Strength of Gentleness. Yes, even when it's tough. It's a good place to find self-control but we have to give ourselves a heart check and dive deeper into Joy on a daily basis in God's presence. I'm sure you can find all kinds of devotionals and studies on the fruit of the Spirit and Joy. Today, I just wanted to share a little of the heart of it with you all. May you all have a peaceful evening, in Jesus name.
The Lord is my strength and my shield, my heart trusts in him, and he helps me. My heart leaps for joy, and with my song I praise him. ~Psalm 28:7
