Joy is holy. Joy is strength. Joy is life. You are joyful, and your joyfulness pleases God. The more joy you have, the holier you are. Joy is righteous, joy is good, joy is altruistic, joy blesses people, joy helps people, joy gives you strength, joy is light. Depression is darkness.
So do not grieve, today is holy. Be filled with joy for the joy of the Lord is your strength. You’ve never been stronger than when you’re filled with joy.
Your joy is your strength. Let it exude from your body. Practice joy. Practice happiness. Practice lifting people up with your smiles and your encouragement and your positive outlook. It’s a good thing, and God appreciates it and loves it because it honors God. Amen
PRAYER: Dear Lord, help me to always be filled with joy. Help me to practice joy and to share joy with others. Amen.
REFLECTION: How can we live joyfully every day?
