Joy

I decided today to start a little personal study on joy, mostly because mine seems to be so transient and easily crushed.  Here's what I discovered today on my little joy-journey.

God takes joy a lot more seriously than I thought he did!  Here'a the verse I read today -

All these curses shall come upon you and pursue you and overtake you till you are destroyed, because you did not obey the voice of the Lord your God, to keep his commandments and his statutes that he commanded you.
Because you did not serve the Lord your God with joyfulness and gladness.
                                                                               -Deuteronomy 28:45,47
Yikes!  God cursed Israel not just for not obeying him, but for not being joyful and glad in doing so.
