“Brothers, I do not consider that I have made it my own. But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 3:13-14

What brings you joy? Joy is a personal choice. One definition of joy I found was “that excitement of pleasurable feelings which is caused by success or good fortune.” But, what happens when that very thing that brings you joy is taken from you? We need to find our joy in Jesus Christ and following after Him. Our eyes need to be fixed on Him and not our circumstance. In Hebrews, we read of Jesus that, “for the joy that was set before Him [He] endured the cross, despising the shame.” WOW. We are the joy of Jesus! So, my friend, my prayer for you today is that Jesus will be your complete joy!
