31 Days {Joy} Psalms 16:11

You make the path of life known to me,
Complete {Joy} is in your presence,
Pleasures are by your side forever.
Psalms 16:11 {GW}

I spent many many years searching for joy in the wrong places.  In guys, in drugs, in the approval of others I did so much to find the joy in life.  Where have you searched for joy?

To have a joy so strong that it can't be changed by circumstances, isn't that what we all want? I have found that the ONLY place to find that kind of joy is to be in the presence of the Lord.   To have deep conversations with him, to worship him with my whole heart. When we make God our priority we find a joy that consumes us! 

In the past 10 years since I came back to Jesus and gave him my whole heart, I have had troubles, I have had times when I wondered why, but what gets me through those times with Joy is knowing that he has promised to make all things good. He makes beauty from ashes.
