Oh, the joys of those who do not follow the advice of the wicked,
or stand around with sinners, or join in with mockers.
But they delight in the law of the Lord, meditating on it day and night. Psalm 1:1-2
Do you struggle with finding real joy? Could it be that it's because of those you choose to hang out with? Get advice from? Join in with... gossip and negative speech?
Dear one, you will never find real joy there. Perhaps it's time to hang out with those who delight in the law of the Lord... those who meditate on it day and night. Why???
As it is written, "They are like trees planted along the riverbank, bearing fruit each season.
Their leaves never wither, and they prosper in all they do" [Psalm 1:3]
Today, you may have to choose to find some new sources of joy... Like your Bible and/or... some new people to "stand around"!
