Being a Christian and sober from drugs and alcohol for over 5 years now (began Jan 3, 2011) I have longed to experience what the Bible and others call Joy. I have found in the past that when I take a theme (love, faith, “I am”) and pursue everything I can find on the topic from trusted writers, theologians and above all God’s Word that I grow and personalize that area of life which I have longed to experience more deeply.
To that end I have begun reading Bible.com 30-day devotional by Oswald Chambers on the topic of Joy. Not surprisingly that has turned into successive daily blogs so I will group those ponderings into a series.
My prayer is that they draw you to consider the promise and importance of determining the definition, foundation, and source of eternal Joy in your own life through a deeper, richer and more satisfying walk with God.
Blessings in Christ,
