Uncommon Joy…Joy can seem illusive. However, joy is the birthright of all who are born again. This joy isn’t just a future inheritance in heaven; it’s God’s gift to us right now, right in the middle of life’s challenges and disappointments. The joy of the believer is uncommon, because it isn’t rooted in circumstances or feelings. It’s anchored in the presence of Christ and the unshakeable hope He brings. As a prisoner locked in chains, Paul wrote words of undaunted joy, which have the power to rekindle our joy in the journey.
“There is a joy in the journey
There's a Light we can love on the way
There is a wonder and wildness to life
And freedom for those who obey.”
-- Michael Card
