Jump For Joy ツ

I pray that God, the source of hope, will fill you completely with joy and peace because, you trust in him. Then you will overflow with confident hope through the power of the Holy Spirit.    {romans 15:13}

Are you going through a challenging life season? Do you want to know about peace? God calls on us to trust in him even if it’s not always easy or doesn’t make sense. There’s one promise that some people often miss. God promises real joy (not just happiness) when we listen to him and live by what the bible says.

By spending time with God in prayer and daily Bible lessons, we can enter into God’s wonderful presence and allow His truths about joy fill our hearts. I know sometimes it can be challenging but, you have to try to stay positive and stay faithful. Never run out of faith. You are not alone in this journey. God always knows what he is doing and he has got this under control. You just have to trust him and give him all the glory and make sure you are doing what you can to stay faithful and connected to him!

Psalm 1:1-3 says, “delight in the law of the Lord, meditating on it day and night,” then we will be filled with joy. This states a big place in my life. If you take time in the scripture and you fill your life with wonderful things and you spend time in the word, that will result into Joy from God. Trying to choose joy and trying to stay faithful during life’s many challenges is not going to be easy, especially when we are tempted to ignore God’s word and truth and try to go our own way. We see joy as one of the fruits of the spirit. We have to choose to allow the Holy Spirit to work in our lives.

“Those who plant in tears will harvest with shouts of joy”. {psalms 126:5} We don’t have to understand joy completely to apply it to tough situations. That’s one reason I think joy is so important and I cling to it. We can still have a broken heart and feel broken and lost but, even when we are weak we can know that God is there and that we can still use Joy and give encouragement to others!

One thing we can do is try to stay positive and have joy not only for yourself but, for other people. Joy is one thing that God promises and is very important to following the bible. We have to have joy to receive things from our heavenly father!

Joy can make something very difficult and hard turn into a blessing. James 1:2-4 describes life’s troubles are “an opportunity for great joy”. The struggles you face in your life can result in blessings. You just have to trust and give it time to all work out. God’s great joy is very important. His love is never ending and it never runs out. Joy does not get chased off by trouble, it results in blessings. Make sure you reach for heaven and jump for joy!

If you ever need to talk don’t hesitate to message me! I’m here to talk to anyone! God loves you and so do I.

XOXO, Carsyn
