31 Days of Pure Joy: Day 14~ The Bubbling

 
     Bubbling joy is a beautiful picture.
 
     Since joy does not depend on our circumstances, it is simple to share. It bubbles, bursts, and beautifies life.
 
     We can say with the Psalmist, "my cup overflows!" (Psalm 23:5b)
 
     Looking for a way to spread joy today? Here is how to go from no joy to excessive, over-spilling, bubbling, pure joy:
  1. Fill up with God's love in His presence through Scripture, prayer, or quiet. When God's love for you seems too overwhelming, you may cry (tears of joy), smile, or stand in awe, inspired by His desire for an intimate relationship with you.
  2. Thank Him!
  3. This deep love may motivate you to do something for His kingdom, whether that is to make dinner for your family, read a good book to a child, or simply be open to God's plans for you today, however spontaneous or inconvenient.
     This exercise may be extremely easy because:

 
     Bubbling joy will spread itself sometimes, through a word, gesture, or smile that you didn't even realize made someone's day!
