Have you had your medicine today? Proverbs 17:22 – “A joyful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.” I hope and pray that you take your medicine every day. I’m not saying that we have to walk around in denial of the tragedy and heart ache that is around us. I’m not asking you to take the Pollyanna approach.
HOWEVER, … I think it is high time we take a look around and see what God is doing. Recently some of our staff at Joy620 met with other Christians in the Media. It was like a family reunion, even though we had never met some of those in attendance. With all the destruction and anxiety in this world. God is raising up people in every facet of life who are willing to take his good news into the other most parts of the earth. They are also willing to take the good news just around the corner. You will never hear about those who really spread the good news in the dominate media culture. Maybe that is for the best. Perhaps the emphasis should be on the message of the gospel and not the ones who carry it.
So here is my questions… are you a carrier? Are you delivering joy? Are people genuinely glad to see you? If not, check your J-O-Y meter. Smile… God loves you even in the darkest hour. “Get your Joy on” or maybe even “choose joy.” Proverbs 17:22
