The Secret Of Joyful Living

It is not really a secret at all. It is the acronym is JOY!

JESUS, OTHERS and YOU. Put Jesus first, others 2nd and yourself last. That is a recipe for true joy in your life.

Jesus is the true source of joy, even in the most difficult circumstances. If you put others ahead of yourself it is hard to have a pity party. Finally, you will get to think of yourself, but then you go back to the first, Jesus.

But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Matthew 6:33

And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you. Ephesians 4:32

What Are You Thinking?

January 4, 2022

The Bible says what we think, is what we are. We can be positive or negative.

We are so tempted to think negative, unproductive and even sinful thoughts. What we think is what we become.

Have you ever been unable to sleep because something is bothering you that your mind will not let you rest? I think we have all been there.

What can we do about these thoughts? The Bible has the answer.

Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. Philippians 4:8

Has Your Faith Faltered?

January 3, 2022

If we listen to the news media, we may experience fear, worry, doubt, defeat, and discouragement.

Wars, natural disasters, spreading of coronavirus and other bad news can cause us to have negative thoughts.

These thoughts can cause our faith in Jesus to falter. How can we overcome and get back to a secure faith in Jesus?

First, read the Bible daily. Remember who Jesus is and what He has done for us. He is our Savior. We can trust Him with our life.

Do not listen to negative reports. Be aware but do not let the news become an obsession. Turn it off if you have to.

Stay away from people who are negative. Fellowship and seek Godly council from spiritual Christians.

Pray and ask the Holy Spirit to guide us into a closer relationship with the Lord. God loves us and will take care of us no matter what the circumstances.
