Celebrate Joy

The Joy of the Lord is alive in our hearts! This website celebrates the Joy in my heart and the Joy in your heart. It's all about the supernatural gift of Joy that the Lord brings into every heart that is open to his presence. Yet it often hides beneath the surface, waiting to surprise us.

Here you can read inspiring stories of how the Lord has gifted me, you and others with this amazing Joy, enabling us to live and move and have our being in his presence. Here you can share your thoughts on the Joy Alive within you and interact with other readers seeking the same grace.

As the sun comes up on the lake behind my home, so the Lord quietly comes into our lives each day. At first only a sliver of his light displaces the darkness of the night. Then the hint of an orange glow edging above the horizon. If you look away for a moment to fix the coffee, it continues to ascend and astonish you with an ever-changing array of brilliant colors. Breathtaking! The next time you look out the window the light is in full regalia. By the time you leave for your day away from this serenity, the light is shining above you like a doting parent whose love follows you everywhere.

So what reminds you of the Joy of the Lord in your heart? How does Joy arise from the depths of your heart? Doesn't it always surprise you with grace, enlivening you when you need it the most?  I invite you to post your comments to the blogs about how they inspire and motivate you. You may use the Contact form to share your own story with us. If you subscribe you will regularly receive these uplifting stories in your Inbox.

Let this website be a touchstone for you when you need inspiration, encouragement or motivation. Share the JOY Alive in your heart.

    lol a couple of the reviews bloggers write are silly and unrelated. There are times I wonder whether they at all read the post before writing or whether they just look at the subject of the blog post and compose the very first thought that drifts to their minds. But it is great to see a intelligent commentary every now and then in contrast to the exact same, traditional blog bull which I too many times notice on the blogs. Regards

    hello there and thank you for your information – I have definitely picked up something new from right here. I did however experience some technical points using this web site, as I experienced to reload the site a lot of times previous to I could get it to load correctly. I had been wondering if your web hosting is OK? Not that I’m complaining, but sluggish loading instances times will often affect your placement in google and can damage your quality score if ads and marketing with Adwords. Anyway I am adding this RSS to my e-mail and could look out for a lot more of your respective exciting content. Make sure you update this again soon..

  8. Thank you for sharing “JOY!” I feel that we must celebrate the JOY of our faith, and not get so wrapped up in all the world: worry, fear, and all those things that detract and try to steal our joy. I tell my kids that no matter what: No one can steal your joy because that is God’s gift to your soul!
