Jesus endured the cross, for the joy set before Him. The Father promises that joy will come after the night of mourning. James encouraged us to count it all joy when we face trials of many kinds, because of what those trials are accomplishing. Scripture tells us that laughter is good medicine. There must really be something to this joy thing!
So let’s pray for joy and see where that leads, shall we? And in the meantime, let’s seize the laughable moments any and everywhere we can find them! If my laughter moves God’s heart even half as much as my children’s laughter moves mine, I think we’ll all be delighted at what comes out of this search!
Here’s to finding your joy in Jesus…and in the life He has blessed us with. May we develop eyes to see the humor in things, and hearts willing to cast off unnecessary restraint. May people look at us like we’re crazy, and may we have no problem keeping on about our merry ways, leaving trails of joy everywhere we go!
