There are moments in life when joy becomes an aroma that entwines the atmosphere. It saturates our mental concept with hope. A reassurance that difficulties are only temporary. However, our mental perceptions is what dictates our ability to receive this notion, which produces the key. It is this key that unlocks the door to peace. In this arena, the atmosphere is composed of joy. Happiness is a state of being and can easily depart when circumstances attack our flesh. Happiness can also be a result of a loved ones treatment as we engage in daily activities. However, Joy is the essence in which happiness derived from. It is this essence that elevates us to a place where problems don’t trouble us, trials don’t burdens us, circumstances don’t stress us and tribulations don’t destroy us. It brings the mental understanding that everything is under control by a Mighty God, so why worry about things that thoughts can not change? We are charged to believe and in that belief our actions must agree with our belief. Once they agree, we enter a moment of anticipation……..Believing and Knowing that GOD is in control……so why faint..just trust, believe and receive.
Then he said unto them, Go your way, eat the fat and drink the sweet, and send portions unto them for whom nothing is prepared: for this day is holy unto our Lord: neither be ye sorry; FOR THE JOY OF THE LORD IS YOUR STRENGTH (Nehemiah 8:10)
