Maya Angelou said, “A bird doesn’t sing because it has an answer; it sings because it has a song.” What is the new song of God wants to you sing?
Could joy be the new song God wants you to sing? Jesus tells us, “These things I have spoken to you so that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be made full.” John 15:11
But, why is it so difficult to choose joy & why do we feel so guilty or selfish or (filled in your critical voices) when we try to choose joy?
Today’s Advent Podcast – Spark Joy: Free Your Heart & Time to Do What Makes You Come Alive with Joy – explores this question. (Email subscribers: click here to listen on my blog)
