More Joy~

 Joy is not

. . .  a sappy saying slapped over an empty wound.

. . . a temporary high, satisfying only a second.

. . . sentimentalism, transient happiness rooted in transient circumstances.

Joy is

. . . relief for the broken.

. . . sustenance for the starved.

. . .  love for the hopeless.

. . .  true love, rooted in the Gardener who tends our souls.

“I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing,” said Jesus– the author of joy.

The JOY of the LORD is your STRENGTH.
