These things I have spoken unto you, that My joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full." ~ John 15:11
One thing I have noticed in my walk with God, is that no matter what comes my way, no matter what kind of day I'm having, I have the joy of the Lord within me.
Most of you are not aware that twenty-one years ago, I was diagnosed with a form of Muscular Dystrophy which left me in a very weakened state for several years. I had to change a number of things in my life and I had to come to grips with my limitations. At one point I had to use a cane to walk. I did not know what the future held for me, but I did know one thing was certain: His joy was within my heart and it gave me strength.
The Word says, "The joy of the Lord is my strength," and I am a living example of that very thing. In the face of an uncertain future, God gave me His joy in the midst of the storm.
Now, twenty-one years later, I can walk without a cane and I am enjoying my life in spite of the hurdles the MD throws my way. Do I have joy in my life? Yes! Jesus is my JOY and He gets sweeter and sweeter as the days go by!
LIVING LIFE WITH AN ATITUDE OF GRATITUDE.
