Advent Day 16

Joy is a fruit of the spirit, not a result of our gratification.

Joy is an intentional action.

Sometimes I am good at being joyful.  I am tapped into God no matter the situation and I feel His joy.

But other times, even aware of God's presence, I get cranky because things just aren't going right.

Being in God's joy is much better so I'll work toward being in joy more than being cranky, with God's help.

Go, eat your bread with gladness, and drink your wine with a joyful heart, for it is now that God favors what you do. ~ Ecclesiastes 9:7

Wine is also a source of joy for me.  I'm happy to have found this scripture.
