Sometimes, maybe even most of the time, we look for joy in our outward circumstances.
This time of year we may try to find it in the cheerful decorations,
in the parties and celebrations,
in getting the gift we really, really wanted.
And then the holidays are over and January finds us feeling empty and blue.
Real joy is found in Jesus,
in living in the assurance of His never-ending love
and knowing deep-down that this life is not all that there is.
My favorite version of "Joy to the World" is definitely this one by Whitney Houston.
Her life definitely showed us that true joy is not found in this world's wealth and fame.
May I suggest you listen to this song,
maybe even do a joyful little dance in your living room,
praise the Lord,
and shake off the heaviness of this world.
Come on....give it a try....I bet you'll feel better afterwards.
