00092 - Always look for joy

Updated: Mar 10, 2023

The local elections were at hand, I needed to vote, so I trundled along to the community centre and queued. I got busy doing emails on my phone and didn’t realise the line split off into two, one room for voting and the other room for weight watchers. I heard some chuckles and then realised I was in the wrong line. I guess they laughed because I was 65 kg’s with a physique that resembled a golf club. It was hysterical in the end, who would have thought voting was so much fun! Psalm 16:11 says You make known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence…’ (NIV).

There are moments in life when you just need to smile and find joy in the situation, not be offended, or hurt, just laugh it off. Life is rich when we find joy in anything.

Quote Joy is found when we don’t mind laughing in any situation.

Prayer Father, thank you, that you are the Lord of Joy. Help me find joy if it’s missing, Amen.

Action point

Everyone knows what brings joy into their life, take a day off and go do the wholesome thing that brings you joy.
