" You make known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand." -Psalm 16:11
There is a Christian Bible song I learned in church as a child and have taught it to many kids as I grew older. When we accept Jesus is our lives and daily talk with Him and read the Bible we can't help but to experience joy. The lyrics go 'I have the joy joy joy joy down in my heart, where? Down in my heart, where? Down in my heart. I have the joy joy joy joy down in my heart to stay. And I'm so happy so very happy, I have the love of Jesus in my heart, down in my heart. And I'm so happy so very happy, I have the love of Jesus in my heart'.
Those words should resound through every Christian who has found Jesus as their Savior. When we read the Bible we can find all kinds of things to be joyful for even in our trials because we know Jesus is by our side through each of them. Even when Satan tries to bring us down we can turn to Jesus find the joy we need. Another verse of the song which the kids enjoy is, 'And if the Devil doesn't like it, he can sit on a tack...he can sit on a tack to stay'.
Read your Bible and allow yourself the joy God has laid out before you each day.
