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.

Joy breaks through -

Joy breaks through –

The complete quote from John is this, based in the Christ, also continuous, uninterrupted, always available to shine within us.

And ye now therefore have sorrow: but I will see you again, and your heart shall rejoice, and your joy no man taketh from you.
