I wrote this mediation today after contemplating Del Anderson’s writing on “Spirituality and Service” http://www.godsspiritinaction.org/delswritings.htm. He talks about God’s Spirit within us and how spiritual health is not just feeling good, it is also the “daily unfolding process to change, grow and trust God’s process.”
Joy is not just happiness, it is also enjoying the process of learning to entrust all things to God.
Entrust – to put trust in God * Enjoy – to put joy in the process of trusting
Joy is in the Spirit within me. Joy is bigger than me (my body), since joy is in my Soul.
Even when my body is not joyful it is possible for my Spirit to be joyful – my Spirit sees how I follow the path to joy – and my Spirit rejoices!
The joy of the Lord (within me) is my strength!
