#atozchallenge J is for…

A joyful spirit is evidence of a grateful heart.
~ Maya Angelou ~

Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fullness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.
~ Psalm 16:11-11 ~

Hello friends. (smile) Welcome to Day 12 of the A to Z Challenge. I’m joyful for the A to Z Challenge, meeting many awesome writers, tons of visitors to my blog (thank you) and I’m more committed to writing and finishing my book. Praise The Lord. (smile)

The upside to joyful:

Joy is a fruit of the spirit.

Joyful is when we bring our unique style to the table.

Joyful is sharing experiences to help one another.
Joyful is when we walk or crawl, (remember I like to crawl, it allows me to rest between the its), through enough challenges, that faith and contentment replaces angst and other negative stimulus around us. (grin)

Joyful is when realize challenges, like seasons change. Sometimes, the timing bites but in the long run, we can count it all joy.

Joyful because we’re more than conquerors. (smile)

Abundant blessings to keep the faith and enjoy your day.

I welcome your thoughts. (smile)

  1. Ann, I am reminded (nudged by the Holy Spirit), to remind everyone that our joy come from a heart filled with the Joy of the Lord…

    We see this spoken by Christ Himself, as recorded in…

    John 15:11… “These things I have spoken to you, that My joy may remain in you, and that your joy may be full. (NKJV)

    Have a blessed day in the Lord !!
