He Gives Us Joy

Today I will be sharing a guest post by my beautiful and sweet friend, Des!! She has such a beautiful heart for God and I’m so excited to share this post with you! 

What is joy? The definition of joy is the feeling of great pleasure or happiness. It means to rejoice.

At least for me, it’s not very hard to be joyful. It’s just my personality. I find joy in the little things.
But we all have our days. Sometimes we get so wrapped up in wanting certain things or wishing things could be different that we don’t see what God has already given us.
We think we have to be constantly going somewhere, doing stuff or buying things to have joy.

A wise woman knows that joy and peace come from the Lord,
while a foolish one seeks happiness anywhere she can find it.
-Darlene Schacht-

Our joy shouldn’t come from objects or even people, our joy should come from the Lord.
That’s where true joy is found.

{ Psalms‬ ‭118:24 }
This is the day the LORD has made. Let’s rejoice and be glad today!‬ ‭

When you look around, there’s so much that God has given us to find joy in….
If we open our eyes and soak in His presence, we’ll find joy in the ordinary.
