Good mornin my fellow tribe brothers and sisters … I pray u all had a good nite …
I slept good … and thats a blessings!
Reading my scriptures this mornin, I noticed a pattern … they have all been on joy … something a lot of lack in our lives. Some find joy in "things" or other ppl. but our real joy comes from within, when we know things are right.
I myself havent had much joy to speak of because I have allowed fear to overrule my joy.
Being a Christian, I know that my joy comes from the Father. I know the Word, and do my very best to live it every day … openly and in private … but as a human, I fail. And its not a sin to fail!!! Its not a sin to fail … I say it twice cuz some ppl believe that if they fail they are sinning.
If I was perfect and never failed, then why would I need God? But with the "religious" background most of us have, we live under condemnation more than anything. This causes undo anxiety.
If you fail, pick urself up … ask the Lord for help and walk on … it is not always easy, esp when we are goin thru a valley … thru this darkness we dont understand. Our joy can come again … even in the midst of troubles.
Ask and u will recieve, that ur joy may be full … John 16:24
I\'m asking today myself. I want to have joy.
For u who need joy, I am posting the following scripttures … read em, pray em … and I hope ur day is full of joy and blessings …
