Don’t Worry, Be Joyful

Posted by twpeck on October 10, 2008

I say “be joyful”, because joy is a much deeper sense than happiness.

Happiness fleets, like losing a pound on a diet only to regain it back again when you drink that pint of water, then lose it again the next time you use the bathroom.

Joy comes form within.  It is a gift from God through our Lord Jesus Christ.  It is the “something” that Christians should exhibit – if they really consider that He is in control.  It should not have an effect on our psyche, those of us who claim Christ as Lord and Savior, who wins the next election, what the Dow is at the end of the day, or our pay at work.

All is from God and all is God’s and He can do as He sees fit and everything, even that which we deem as “bad” is from God – so we should be joyful no matter what.

Now, to the world, this reaction would have them sending us to the local Mental Health center.  But to God, this is the response He wants from us and He has His Hand on us.

So, why worry, be joyful.  It is a more pleasant way to be and a much more fun than fretting.
