Seize and Maintain the Joy of Jesus!

Good morning, Happy Souls!

Bill Keller wrote a devotional today that I
recommend to you. He has given me permission to
copy his e-mails, and I'm sure he would be happy if
you would share this with people you know as well.

In the worst of times, Jesus is there to guide and
comfort us. The Holy Spirit is also with us to direct
us. After we die, Jesus will take us to God if we are
saved. No matter what our troubles, we should feel
all of the joy that we have from our Holy connections!

Please read on.


( Psalms 16:11, 126:5, Isaiah 12:3, Romans 14:17,
John 16:33 )

Don't let anyone or anything steal your JOY! I realize
that as many of you wake up and read this message today,
you have allowed people or the circumstances in your life
YOUR JOY!!! If you know Jesus Christ as your Lord and
Savior, you have the assurance that when this brief
journey here is over you will be forever with the Lord.
That fact alone is the reason you should always have joy.

Do you know how many people are waking up this morning who
will die and spend eternity in hell because they have
rejected Jesus Christ? Many of those people have been
deceived into following a false religion, many have simply
chosen to live their lives acting like God doesn't exist,
and sadly, many simply don't care. Let me assure you that
no matter how deeply someone believes in a false religion,
how great the material possessions a person may have,
without knowing Jesus Christ by faith there can be no real
joy in this life.

People choose to live every day without Christ and deal
with the trials and tribulations of life on their own.
Deep down they know something is missing. Deep down they
know there has to be more to this life. No matter how
wonderful your family may be, no matter how much wealth you
can amass, no matter how successful you may become, the
fact is living your life without Christ leaves you empty
and void of true joy.

This is a simple yet very profound message for you today.
Don't let anyone or anything steal your joy. No matter
how much someone you care about may hurt you, you can still
have joy. No matter what someone you work with or go to
school with does to you, you can still have joy. If you
are fighting a health battle today, you can still have
joy. If you are hurting financially, you can still have
joy. If your marriage is in trouble, you can still have
joy. If you need a job, you can still have joy. If you
are battling an addiction, you can still have joy. DON'T

I love you and care about you so much. I realize many of
you are dealing with serious issues with people in your
life today. I am fully aware that many of you are
fighting great battles in your life today. The message
that I want you to hear loud and clear is that no person
or no circumstance can take away your joy. That joy
comes from the promise Jesus gave His disciples and us
just a few hours before His death. He said that in
this world we would have trials and tribulations, but to
be of good cheer, for HE HAS OVERCOME THIS WORLD.

That my friend is where our joy comes from. From that
precious promise that no matter who or what may be going
on in our life, because we know Jesus Christ by faith, we
not only have the assurance of eternity with Him, but the
promise of His strength, His peace, and HIS JOY during
this brief journey! Because you know Jesus, you have the
Holy Spirit that supplies you with God's power. Because
you know Jesus, you have the peace that passes all human
understanding. Because you know Jesus, you have
unspeakable JOY!

I will be praying for you today. As a child of God, a
follower of Jesus Christ, that joy is yours always. It
is like if someone gives you a car and adds on a top of
the line stereo system. If you don't play that stereo
system it is YOUR FAULT. If you don't have the joy of
the Lord in your life today, it is YOUR FAULT. For
those who know Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior you
should always have joy in your life. Don't ever let
anyone or anything steal your joy!!!

In His love and service,
Your friend and brother in Christ,
Bill Keller
