Joy.
It’s a choice.  It’s an action.  It’s a manifestation. It’s an extension of Him living in us…and of Him reaching out to others.  It’s our strength.
It’s His kingdom, alive in us.

Psalm 150

“Praise the Lord!

Praise God in His sanctuary;

Praise Him in His mighty expanse.

Praise Him for His mighty deeds;

Praise Him according to His excellent greatness.

Praise Him with trumpet sound;

Praise Him with harp and lyre.

Praise Him with dancing;

Praise Him with stringed instruments and pipe.

Praise Him with loud cymbals;

Praise Him with resounding cymbals.

Let everything that has breath praise the Lord.

Praise the Lord!”

Praise and joy…sure indicators of a life consumed with Him.
