This past weekend was full.
Saturday, December 4, Antioch hosted the We Need a Little Joy Women’s Christmas Conference where speaker Shannon Cannon taught on our need for encouragement and joy.
I was blessed by Shannon’s teaching because I can relate. I get discouraged and despondent. It’s easy for me to feel overwhelmed, angry, and ready to quit. Shannon reminded me though of the source of all joy.
True, lasting joy isn’t found in ideal circumstances, success, good health, or getting what I want. Don’t get me wrong, there’s some enjoyment there but it quickly vanishes.
True and lasting joy is only found in the heart of God. To know Jesus is to have and experience true joy. It is a product of God’s presence in my life no matter the circumstances.
Do you need joy today? Look to Jesus and enjoy…
