As we continue in our Meditation series of the Fruit of the Spirit, today we’re focusing on the second aspect of the Fruit of the Spirit: JOY.

 🎙️In today's meditation, we’ll look closely at joy and how Jesus says we can find true and complete joy in our lives. 🌺

As you engage with this guided Scripture meditation, allow the Spirit to lead you to what he has for you.

🍎 Here are 3 takeaways from the episode that I don’t want you to miss:

  • Joy is not dependent on our circumstances, but rather found in surrender and trust in God. It's not about waiting for everything to be perfect, but about finding joy in the midst of life's challenges.
  • Jesus tells us that true joy comes from remaining deeply connected to God and being obedient to Him. When we keep His commands and love others as He has loved us, we experience a deep, settled joy.
  • Joy is a fruit of the Spirit, which means we don't have to strive for it on our own. We can rely on the Holy Spirit to help us cultivate and experience this joy in our lives.

You’ll discover all this and So Much More. Plus, you’ll leave feeling the deep peace that meditation and time with God brings. So, take a deep breath and enjoy the meditation.

A Morning Prayer to Count Your Blessings - Your Daily Prayer - February 25

I invite you to join me in taking a pause in your morning, even if it is after all the kiddos are in school (or you have to hide in your closet), so you can truly honor God for all His goodness and faithfulness. Because the truth of the matter is that when we give thanks to God in the morning, it sets the tone for our day and gives way for us to praise Him throughout it.
