Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say, Rejoice. Philippians 4:4 King James Version
Have you ever met the Gloomy Gusses?
They walk around looking as if they are always sucking lemons.
You would think their faces would crack and smash like broken glass if they ever cracked a smile.
What a pitiful existence (it is certainly not what I would consider a life).
They could not tell you anything positive or happy if their life depended upon it.
They suck the joy and life out of you quicker than an industrialized vacuum cleaner.
They pompously criticize you when they see you happy.
The only thing funny about them is their foolish claim to be Christians.
A gloomy Christian is a contradiction in terms. Joseph- Anthony: Green
Jehovah created us to live a life of joy.
Look for the simple beauty around you every day and rejoice in it, like a sunrise or sunset a gentle snow fall with the snowflakes performing a delicate ballet, the fall colour, the symphony of the song birds.
You ask me why I am filled with rejoicing and I ask you if you are death, blind, and or dumb?
The more you rejoice in the gifts of Gods beauty all around us, the less attractive the pleasures of the world are. Joseph- Anthony: Green
Prayer: Thank you Yahweh Sabbath (God of the heavens) for all the incredible creations You have so generously provided for us to marvel at Your awesome beauty and majesty. When we take the time to observe them it is only natural to feel a deep sense of awe, love and respect for You. I exalt You for these magnificent treasures in the name of our most precious treasure Jesus Christ. Amen.
May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.
