DAY 80: Protect Your Joy

Anxiety weighs down the heart, but a kind word cheers it up.  ~ Proverbs 12:25

The world was crushing me, I couldn't see a way out. After steadily praying to God for relief, he gave this to me while standing in the shower... listening for Him.

"No man is strong enough to steal your joy. But you can give it away any time you choose."

That was a turning point in my faith and life. It opened a window just wide enough for God to pour in His love and relief. I saw things differently.

When worry and heavy thoughts drag you to the ground, remember the only man strong enough to take your joy - is you.  

Don't give it away and never exchange it for hopeless thoughts.. 

Link up with a couple of brothers who will speak life or stay tight with us. You were created for God's purpose and you are built for joy.
