WHAT IS JOY?
WHAT IS JOY?
It’s a three letter power-packed word. When you have it, you can do almost anything not minding the circumstances in which you find yourself. Your joy is not determined by what happens to you but by what happens in you.
Joy intoxicates! Joy inspires! Joy energizes! And Joy is maddening! You know a madman by his dressing, which includes his/her peculiar manner of hairstyle. It is something known worldwide. The hair grows carelessly, gets twisted and continues to overgrow. While the rest of us would quickly rush to the barber to look neat, the madman care less. So also you can quickly and easily identify a joyful man, by the way and manner he responds to life and the challenges of life because:
Joy is a river,
Joy is the sun that never sets
Joy is the moon that never goes down
Joy is the ever-falling rain
Joy is the inexhaustible oil,
Joy is the flower that never fades.
Joy is an ever-growing tree,
Joy is a perfume,
Joy is ever giving, ever sharing and always caring.
Joy is always serving and ever leading.
Joy is lovely, sweet, beautiful and romantic.
Joy is needed by all and sundry.
According to the Bible (Gal. 5:22). Joy is a fruit of the spirit, the product of the seed of salvation. Joy could be described as an anointing or power that creates festivity in the midst of challenges. Just lie the madman a joyful man care less about the negative. And he is always looking for ways of turning challenges into celebration. He is 100% positive.
Joy is a seed. When you plant it and nurture it very well, it becomes a tree that produces lovely fruits. The more joy you give to others the more opportunity you create for yourself to live a joyful life.
Or better said, joy is a Mad Thriller. Just as there are different levels of madness so also there are different levels of joy. Your level of joy is all based on your state of heart, your choice and the seeds you have sown in order to make others happy and joyful.
