You know when you are just hanging out or in my case cleaning something, cooking something or teaching something, and you are just happy? I find my self feeling guilty for it sometimes. I will just be happy and completely content in a moment for no real reason. My day might not have gone at all according to plan or something very heavy could be weighing on my mind but yet here I am oblivious to reality and oh so happy. This is called JOY. It took me a little while to get used to this thing that the lord gives you called joy. At first it made me feel uneasy. I felt guilty for not feeling miserable if my situation seemed miserable. I wasn’t sure what to do with this happiness. I eventually learned to just soak it all in and bask in the warm rays of joy.
Life can be hard and beautiful at the same time. Finding happiness for a moment can be easy and other times it can seem impossible. Only joy comes from the lord. Joy is happiness that you don’t have to search for or take action to receive. Joy is a warm blanket that God wraps around your soul in happy times and hard times. It is unexplainable, sometimes unexpected and wonderful.
