“Your joy, no man taketh from you!”
Light about you- Photos by A.W. March 2013
One of the most influential statements from the Bible that has influenced me, is the verse from John 16:22 “…Your joy, no man taketh from you”.
A very dear practitioner shared that verse with me when the my new marriage was struggling. That idea, that joy BELONGED to me, that it was mine was a new idea. It brought healing to us. It was mine to hang on to, mine to express, to live within. Even in the darkest day, joy, as a quality of God is ours. It’s part of our inheritance as a child of God.
This thought, that joy is continuous, uninterrupted, even when circumstances might indicate otherwise is very powerful.
The complete quote from John is this, based in the Christ, also continuous, uninterrupted, always available to shine within us.
