Joy in the Journey?

  Absolutely!  I'm thinking I'm starting to see a theme emerge.  When I called a friend to tell her my news, it was hard for me.  You see, she lost her sister (one of my dear friends) to cancer a few years ago.  I was so blessed by her response.  She told me she would be praying for joy for me because the joy of the Lord would be my strength.  Wow!
 A few hours later, I was talking to my sis and commented that I needed a notebook to record this go-round. She said she had a new journal I could use, but didn't know if it would be appropriate because it was titled "Everyday Joy Journal."  I told her it was perfect and shared my phone call.
  Today, while getting friends caught up on everything, I came across a quote on the Joyce Myer Ministries FaceBook site. "God is never going to put us into a situation or permit us to be in one without giving us the ability to be in it with joy."  Talk about confirmation!


  1. Looking for the "like" button. You'll "like" the poster I made you too - it has the same theme.

  2. Check out any of Barbara Johnson's books. She started a "Joy Box" and put anything that gave her joy in it. Of course, hers became a "Joy Room" as people shared things as her ministry grew. Hugs, dear one :)

  3. I love your strength and viewpoint. You inspire me. I wish you the best and will be praying for you.


Would love for you to share. Thanks for checking out Requirements!
