THE JOY OF MY HEART IS MY GUIDING LIGHT.
Joy is the expansion of the heart. My joy is a sparkling gem of spiritual activity that buoys my spirit. My heart expands in joy when I learn of stories about a person who has gone out of the way to help someone else or whose small gesture makes a monumental difference in another’s life.
Opening to the feelings that bubble up when I observe such actions, I am inspired to act in kind. I give from a place of joy to lend a helping hand to someone in need or provide humor to lift someone’s spirit.
In turn, my joy deepens and expands. I choose to live from the joy in my heart, which is the guiding light of my thoughts and actions. I find deep, lasting fulfillment in all I do.
The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.—Galations 5:22-23
