What Makes You Have More Joy

By a 13-year-old girl

 

I know that everyone would like to feel more joyful everyday. I find that if I do a devotion right when I wake up or before I get far into my day, I have a lot more joy. I feel happier and more helpful. I notice that if I don’t do a devotion, I’m mean to my siblings and am frustrated the whole day. If you would like to have more joy in your day, I would recommend making it a habit to read your Bible or do a devotion every day. If you are looking for something to read, a great idea is to read 3 chapters of the first 4 books in the New Testament(the gospels Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John) each day. You will end up finishing reading in a month.

I got the Joy, Joy, Joy, Joy,

By a 13-year-old girl
Have you ever heard of the song that goes “ I got the joy, joy, joy, joy, down in my heart, down in my heart to stay” ? I was thinking about the lyrics and it says that you have joy down in your heart to stay. This means that because Christ died on the cross for our sins, we can have forever joy because we don’t have to worry about our death. We can be free of worry and be happy because Christ has taken away your punishment. The next time you hear this song, think of the sacrifice that Christ has made for you and everyone. I hope this changed your mind on this song!
