Heavenly Father, thank for making our desire to have communion with You. when I focus on being the best child of God I can be today, I am full of joy, capable of anything on those days. God has put a purpose in all of us. Ask God to put in service, not where you want to be, where He wants you to serve Him.

Praise the Lord. what brings me joy is the fact that there are men who still strive for His excellence. I only find joy in the word. I love reading it I love hearing it. I love speaking it. I love watching what it does. I love thinking about it. See JC s comment below. There is a real value in genuine love. That love we recieve but more importantly the love we give. I love all the brothers who struggle. Struggle represents many things I encourage all of you to quit struggling with sin and instead start struggling with Love. Wrestle with it, question it constantly, give it as much attention if not more than you do your depression (That's hard to do by the way) Plan your Love like you plan your workout. Do it k knowingly and willingly. Praise the Lord. I could have just said Love brings me joy.

I am struggling with, an I doing enough? I’ve been in men’s ministry all my adult life and to answer your question today, my 71 year old body enjoys my family which includes my grandkids and my church family. I’m worried that my traveling days may be over.

Praise God! God is the perfect artist hands down. I love just taking a step back and enjoying some of his creations. Weather it’s a rainy day and watching each rain-drop. Staring at a large mountain and admiring at the beauty, while try to wrap my mind on how such natural phenomena took place. At this point in my life I admire my girlfriends beautiful belly. I thank God for such an amazing miracle, which is my daughter Kamila. God bless you all!

DAY 55: Discovering Your Joy

Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart.  Psalm 37:4

The kind of joy that starts deep in your soul, isn't that what we all really crave? Isn't that the type of happiness every man desires? 

Stand in awe of God, soak up His Spirit, and find gratitude for the sacrifice of Christ. Enjoy all of God and His creation. It will set the desires of your heart and open up the gates of joy and happiness. 

Today, focus on the goodness of God and pay attention to the joy that takes root in your soul.  

What is one thing in God's creation which always brings deep joy?
