Day 38

Joy4“When we are powerless to do a thing, it is a great joy that we can come and step inside the ability of Jesus” ~ Corrie ten Boom. When I accepted this challenge of 100 Days of Happiness, I knew there would be days when I would not be “happy.” Happy is relative. It’s based on people, places, things, and circumstances. For that reason, I decided to write about Joy for 100 days. Joy is based on relationship and communication with our Lord and Savior. This week my joy is layered with situations that attempted to smother my joy. The joy was still there. Distractions surrounded me. I am determined to press beyond the distractions because my joy is in the strength of the Lord. The distractions will not consume me. I am filled with the Joy of the Lord and we know that two things cannot occupy the same place at the same time. Distractions must and will flee. And therein lies my joy.
