JOY is an inside job!
Wednesday, November 27, 2019
After, shamefully, taking a respite from reading daily devotions, I picked it up again today. And I'm so glad I did.
The writer authored a piece in response to a portion of Philippians that spoke about peace and joy. And it's an inside job! WE CONTROL when we want to feel joyful, bitter, angry, happy, elated, mad.....it's all how we choose to react. And if we allow the Spirit to take over, it can be "like water filling a glass, overflowing!"
As we enter this season of joy and Thanksgiving, let's follow the calendar and first give thanks for what's been given to us, and then proceed to fill ourselves with so much of the Spirit that it flows to others!
Happy and Blessed Thanksgiving!
