Wednesday's Word

Well, after a few weeks of craziness, I'm getting back to my regularly scheduled program of Wednesday's word. This week's word is one that has been on my heart a lot lately. The word is JOY.

Actual meaning: Intense and especially ecstatic or exultant happiness.

Meaning to me: The ability to have a peaceful, content feeling deep inside regardless of life's circumstances.

Happiness is something that we all seek. It's human nature to want things to go well. But happiness is fleeting. One day you can be flying high and the next day a storm can send you crashing to the ground.
But joy is different. Joy is something you can have in any circumstance. See, joy comes from the Lord. In fact, the joy of the Lord is our strength. (Nehemiah 8:10)
The joy that we receive deep inside when we are saved is what keeps us strong in the trials of life. And no one can take that from us. But we must recognize the strength that we have. If we don't depend on the Lord in those times of trial, we get defeated. True joy can only come from the Lord.
So trust on Him. Praise Him even in the storms of life. (Check out this post at Reflecting Him) A life of depence on God is a life of true joy!!
