A sudden, strong breeze caused a cascade of falling colors, the leaves dancing a quick minuet with a young girl’s heart and my youngest twirled with delight in the middle of beauty’s downpour.
No shutdown there.
Joy overtook her small frame and she chose to participate with zest, she was rewarded with a leaf shower from her heavenly Father. Becky didn’t miss the moment; she seized it with both hands, hanging on with all her might, snuggling into the experience as brief as it was.
She owned it… and taught her dad a lesson in simplicity as he watched
These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full. John 15:11
Can I encourage you today with the truth that Jesus, wants to impart joy, His joy into us. Watch for those moments, you know the ones, the ones that wake you up and surprise you… and remind you who you belong to. When it comes, drink it in, swallow each mouthful, swim in the moment that the Father showers you with.
Nobody can shutdown those wonderful God filled moments.
“True joy comes only from God and He shares this joy with those who walk in fellowship with Him.” - Jerry Bridges
