Life of Overflowing #Joy, #TheSISTAHSMinistry, #LivingintheOverflow, @MinisterCeleste

When we build with God at the center, we will overflow with JOY from God!

Our Joy does not come from problem free life.

It wasn’t easy for Jesus.

It won’t be easy for us:

• People at work may scoff at us
• Our decisions to follow God—to put him at the center--will be unpopular with our old friend base
• We may incur the wrath of our children

Our Joy should comes from seeing God lovingly at work in our lives.

The Christian life is going to God. In going to God, Christians travel the same ground that everyone else walks on, breathe the same air, drink the same water, shop in the same stores, read the same newspapers, are citizens under the same government, pay the same prices for groceries and gasoline, fear the same dangers, are subject to the same pressures, get the same distresses, are buried in the same ground.  The difference is that each step we walk, each breath we breathe, we know we are preserved by God, we know we are accompanied by God, we know we are ruled by God.
