"Faye's daily words of encouragement"# 10
Psalms chapter 30 - verse 5: For anger endureth but a moment; in his favor is life: weeping may endure for a night but joy cometh in the morning.
1 Peter 1 - verse 8: Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakble and full of glory.
James 1 - 2: My bretheren, count it all joy . when ye fall into divers temptations.
Defintion of the word Joy: Intense happiness or pleasure; the cause of such pleasure.
I count it joy for us to be children of the living God, joy is a word that goes hand in hand with the word happiness; and if we can achieve joy in this world of chaos, then we have achieved a great acomplishment. Joy is the other side of happiness, that we cannot achieve one without the other.
I count it joy , when I can put a smile on some elses face or do a kind service for someone, this is the reason I live my life for. In serving others, it brings me complete joy and happiness and you cannot give out joy without recieving it back two folds. Joy is the catalyst ,that brings us a happy conclusion of any matter. If we use joy and happiness in our lives, there's no room left for sadness or lonliness.
