Finding joy in the journey!

Finding joy. Sometimes we have to let go of how we think life should be and learn to find joy in the story we are living. 🦋

According to Theopedia, Joy is a state of mind and an orientation of the heart. It is a settled state of contentment, confidence, and hope. It is something or someone that provides a source of happiness. It appears 88 times in the Old Testament in 22 books; 57 times in the New Testament in 18 books.

I believe joy is a gift from God but we must be relentless to fight daily to keep it in place. There are many very valid life circumstances that could rob our joy like a cancer diagnosis. However, we must be intentional to guard it, as it is our fountain of strength. There are also many biblical teachings that clearly point out how being in a state of joy is good medicine to our bodies.

As we are just a few days away from Christmas, I encourage you to remain in #Joy by...

  • Staying in awareness with the reason for the season.
  • Acceptance of others
  • Guard your tongue
  • Let go of guilt
  • Set Boundaries
  • Take care of your temple
  • Remember you are precious
  • it’s never too late
  • You are forgiven forever
  • Choose your battles
  • Love freely
  • It’s ok to cry
  • Honor yourself
  • Love & Happiness is a choice
  • Know you are LOVED.

Wishing you much joy and happiness for this holiday season 🙏❤️🎄
