"It takes intentional change and obedience in the Spirit to learn to live in joy." Holly Gerth in "You're Going to Be Okay" This quote resonated with me the first time I read it. Sometimes joy requires action. We must fight for joy. We must remember that strength comes THROUGH joy, not after it. In other words, joy provides strength. It IS a choice. I choose JOY, don't you? What better way to live than with a joyous heart? May Nehemiah 8:10 be a reminder of that for you this week or the next time you are struggling to find joy amidst a storm of struggle.
