finding joy {day fifteen}

When we have the Holy Spirit living within us, we are able to experience TRUE joy.  True joy is the kind of happiness that radiates from within your soul.  People look at you and can see the light of the Lord shining through you.  This is the kind of joy that I long for.

The only way that this type of joy is possible for us is by accepting the Holy Spirit within our hearts.  Without Him, we are nothing and will never know full and lasting happiness.  The things of this world may give us what we perceive as joy.  But when you’ve experienced the “real thing” that only our Maker can give, you will know that there is nothing greater.

As followers of Christ, it is our job to spread this joy to others and to help them learn how they can have this gift for themselves.

Today my desire is to spread joy to those around me.  To let the light of the Lord shine through me in such a way that others would see Him in me.  Let us all be joyful in our words and actions today.
