This picture says it all…There is nothing like watching the joy of a child enjoying the simple things in life…like chocolate ice cream.
How often do I allow things to come in and take and steal away my joy?…stress, worry, money, etc. We can find momentarily joy in things but finding pure joy only comes from God. We can have joy in everything with God. All we need to do is to go to Him. The amazing thing is God rejoices in us when we come to Him just as He rejoices in seeing us enjoy the simple pleasures in life like chocolate ice cream..
But let all who take refuge in You be glad; let them ever sing for joy. Spread Your protection over them, that those who love Your name may rejoice in You.
