“What brings you joy?” asks Holley Gerth as the prompt for this week’s Coffee for Your Heart. I could list a gazillion things that make my heart dance with joy! Every one of them is wrapped in love and gratitude.
Joy gushes out every time I look at what’s before me and think, “Wow! Boy oh boy oh boy! I am so blessed!” When my heart is filled with gratitude for the gifts in my life it brings enJOYment to everything whether I marvel at a sunset, hold a baby, or cross the finish line. With every “thank you” the seed of joy gets watered and grows big, tall and strong. Immovable. Unshakable. Everlasting.
My heart overflows with unspeakable joy when it is filled with love. Everything I say and do that draws me out of myself and is given for others is a source of immeasurable joy. Joy that comes from love I pour out. Joy from accepting the love that pours in from others. Joy from receiving the outpouring of love from God that covers us all.
So, with love and gratitude I leave you with the promise of joy that comes from our one true God. Joy that is ours to choose. Joy that can never be taken away. Joy that is contagious and gushes all over wherever we go:
These things I have spoken to you so that My joy may be in you, and that your joy may be made full. – John 15:11
