Happy Sunday! Did you know (depending on the version) that the word joy occurs over 200 times in the Bible? God wants us to experience joy, to choose joy, to share joy, to feel joy. Choosing joy doesn't mean you go around smiling, always in a state of happiness while ignoring the hard life things we all go through. It does mean we have confidence and contentment knowing that God is in control. It means we rejoice rather than grumble, look for gladness instead of gloom, calm instead of anger. This week, choose joy--let it strengthen and heal you. And, remember to share some of it with those around you!
