I have joy, joy, joy, down in my heart, down in my heart, down in my heart, I've got the joy, joy, joy, down in my heart, down in my heart today!
Why do I have so much joy? Is it because I have a house? Is it because my family is healthy? Is it because I am married? Is it because I am employed? Is it because I have a car? The list goes on and on, but is it those material things why I have so much joy?
In my heart, I listen to God and in that soft whispering, I realized something today, and that is that the material things of the world will pass away, but the one thing that will remain is will I have Faith in God up until the end? Isn't that the most important legacy I can leave behind? Do I want people to remember me for that Toyota I have setting in the drive way or the house that is still standing with the maroon shutters? How about because I go to work every day and come home the same? No, it's because the joy in my heart is there no matter my circumstances because God puts that joy there every day!
To serve him in my heart and to be thankful for this beautiful day he has given me is the most wonderful joy you could ever know! If you have material things in your life that your holding onto, then who are you really serving? God or those things that will pass away? Amen!
