“Joy to the World” starts in you!

The leaves are falling, and harvest is in the air! A great time to be thankful and joyful!

A great time to be thankful and joyful!

There are tons of great scriptures about Joy. A few of my favorites are:

Psalms 30:5 For His anger is but for a moment, His favor is for life; Weeping may endure for a night, But Joy comes in the morning.

Psalms 16:11 You will show me the path of life; In your presence is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.

Galatians 5:22-23 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such, there is no law.

John 15:11 These things I have spoken to you, that My joy may remain in you, and that your joy may be full.

Romans 14:17 for the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.

Acts 1:8,9 Though now you do not see Him, yet believing, you rejoice with joy inexpressible and full of glory, receiving the end of your faith – the salvation of your souls.

3 John 4 I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth.

God is Good and He is full of Joy!

Let me put these together for you.

Joy comes in the morning; it does not stay away for long! In God’s presence, there is fullness of joy. The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, and peace, and there is no law against it. We can stay as long as we like, and God will produce this wonderful fruit in our lives. God’s joy remains in you — never leaves — so that your joy can be full or complete! That joy remains because the kingdom of God is righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. Even though we do not see Him, we are believing. We rejoice with joy inexpressible and full of glory, receiving the end of our faith, the salvation of our souls. We have no greater joy than when we see or hear that our children are walking in that same truth! JOY!
