The Purpose of Joy (Rekindle your Joy with Gratitude)

Happy New Year! With a new year here, I tend to reflect back on the previous year. What was good, what wasn’t so good, and more importantly what I have to be thankful for. As I was contemplating those very blessings, I happened to be listening to the radio when a song by Natalie Grant came on the radio. Here are some of the lyrics:

It’s time to get our hands dirty
Be love there’s a whole lot of hurting
Calling all hearts
Calling all hands
Calling all feet to take a stand
Why sit around and wait for a miracle to come
When we can be one
When we can be one
When we can be one

A little somethin’
Might feel like nothin’
But in His hands it’s all we’ll ever need
To speak life to the broken
Watch the blind eyes open
It’s who He’s calling you and me
To be

How often do we sit and watch another day go by without making a move to make a difference?

Do we really understand the reason for the joy inside of us, but also the purpose of it?

Yes, joy isn’t just something that we have ourselves but it is something that we share with others. Like the flame of the candle that we pass around during Christmas Eve service, we are given the light to spread the joy of the gospel with others.
