God is the Lord of Joy. He brings us eternal blessings and makes us glad with His presence. He showers us with love and gives us joy.
Psalm 21:6 (NIV)
Surely you have granted him unending blessings and made him glad with the joy of your presence.
The joy of the Lord is a neglected aspect of God’s nature and character. From the beginning, God took joy in His creation. He delights in us. God rejoices in our salvation. Our service and worship should reflect His joy. When we get to heaven, the joy will even be greater—beyond measure—than anything we experience during our time on Earth.
Today, as you go about your business, thank God for the joy He has given you. You have lots to be joyful about—focus on that rather than those things that seek to distract you from the good things happening in your life right now.
Praise God for He is the Lord of Joy!

Great points on joy. The Christians who “can’t wait to die and get away from this awful place” are missing out on receiving joy and sharing it, too!
