JOY

One of my greatest JOYS is getting to talk to people personally about Jesus.  Got to do this today after one of our services , and Elsie prayed to trust and follow Christ.  Fired me up especially since we were talking about Contagious JOY today at Grace.

Some of you asked about the definition of joy Kay Warren shared from her study of scripture.   Here it is:  “Joy is the settled assurance that God is in control of all the details of my life, the quiet confidence that ultimately everything is going to be alright, and the determined choice to praise God in every situation.” Kay Warren

A great book for you to consider is Kay Warren’s book:  Choose Joy: Because Happiness Is Not Enough.
