What's Missing?

These things I have spoken to you, that My joy may remain in you, and that your joy may be full.  John 15:11, New King James Version
Have been thinking on joy lately- & my lack of it. Jesus says He gave us His joy and that it may REMAIN - not be lost, stolen, unfelt or surrendered. 
Joy is given to us that we may have it as a God given reality in our everyday life. Joy is also outward fruit or evidence of the impact of God in our life. (Gal 5.22)
I want this joy. 
I am going to be right in front of The King at His feet until I know it as a reality-  If you need some joy too I will hopefully meet you there!!


  1. WOW. Carolyn--I can't tell you how close this hit home with me. I feel like you were speaking right out of my own heart! I have been reading John 15 everyday lately to soak in these verses, for the very same reason.

    Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and saying hi. I appreciated your visit : ) I appreciate every loving comment I receive!

    You said you were visiting from Women Living Well, correct? I just love Courtney's blog. She is such a sweet lady who loves the Lord with her whole heart. I love all of the wonderful posts I find over there.

    Well, it was very nice to "meet" you and I look forward to following your blog : ) Blessings to you, friend!

  2. Hi Miss C, my lovely friend. I thought I'd stop and see if you had the kettle on!
