We are told to “sing joyfully to the Lord!”
That’s really easy to do when big events occur… like a baby being born, or anticipating your child returning from college.
Even at Mass on Sunday mornings when that one special hymn reaches into your soul and shines a light on your heart, it is easy to answer the call to Sing Joyfully to the Lord!
But during our hum-drum daily routine, we are sleepwalking through spiritual opportunities.
Here’s what I’m NOT going to tell you to do: “just be joyful!”
In fact, we’re not asked to BE joyful, we are asked to sing joyfully. This is deeper than just being outwardly happy. This is NOT “fake it ’til you make it.”
Instead, the joy comes from a trust in God. It’s the willingness… eagerness even, to serve Him.
It comes from knowing His love for us is boundless, and His goodness and kindness are infinite.
By making even just a small pause in your day to acknowledge this truth, that is where your song of joy comes from.
So I’m going to give you a minute here to do just that… ready?
Have a blessed day,
