Joy!

Psalms 16:11b
Your presence fills me with joy and brings me pleasure forever.

Have you ever felt such an intense joy, you were sure your heart would burst; a joy that fills your whole body and overshadows all feelings of worry or fear?  A couple of nights ago, I felt such joy.  I couldn’t stop smiling, and I’m sure I fell asleep with a big grin on my face.

Before going to sleep, I always go over my day with God, thanking Him for the blessings of the day, trying to understand the challenges and praising Him.  All my focus is on God.  It was during this time that I felt overwhelming joy. 

Even though the joyous feeling comes only a few times a year and only last for a short time, the memory gives me such a rush of happiness.  It’s His presence filling me with joy, and it continues to “bring me pleasure forever.”  I would like everyone to feel such joy.

When is the last time you focused on God, only God?  Try it tonight before going to sleep.  Open your heart and clear your mind; ask God to let you feel His presence.  You may not feel the joy the first time you try, I didn’t, but it will come.

Until next time, God Bless You.
