Joy! It's far more than what comes out of a bottle to clean dishes. It washes over the spirit, leaving an incredible sense of fulfillment, contentment, peace, and a grateful heart.
So - why don't we have more of it?
"You have made known to me the path of life; You will fill me with joy in Your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand" (Psalm 16:11).
Ahh! There it is. In His presence.
How much time do we spend 'in His presence?' Reflecting, concentrating on Who He is, not what He can do for us. Absorbing Him. Basking in His presence.
How is your joy these days? Do you need to do a little more 'absorbing' and 'basking'?
