“A joyful heart is good medicine…”
Joy is part of the fruit of the Spirit!
So, in order to have joy, we cannot look to spouse…friend…circumstances…chocolate…wine…but we must be filled with the Spirit!! (Eph 5:18)
Once we realize that “In Your presence is FULLNESS of joy” (Psalm 16:11), we will no longer look to a human (or anything else), to give us that “fullness”!! How freeing that is, for us, and for those around us!! Not only will we be full of joy, but our joyful hearts will also be “good medicine”.
