Joy Banner

We can't have enough joy. Our world needs it so much. True joy is complex in that it comes from within regardless of outward circumstances. Have you ever seen someone with a smile on her face ALL the time? There is a checker at WalMart who is continually smiling and I try to get in her line because I need to see someone who actually looks like they are enjoying life and you know standing in a check out booth all day has got to be grueling. I've never seen her without that smile. You can bet you won't catch me with a smile all the time and shame on me
God gives us a sense of inner joy IF we seek him. With that joy comes a special strength as well.
Nehemiah 8:10--"The joy of the Lord is your strength."
