Joy Done Slipped Up on Me!
Nice day at youth group yesterday. Hail storm; then the lights went out 8 times. Moved our study portion to the foyer so we could see the Bible. Read about the lost sheep and the lost coins in Luke 15, and how heaven rejoices over just one who truly repents and get saved.
Was just one of those great moments you cannot produce on your own. One of those moments you have to experience. Lewis would call it being surprised by joy.
You cannot pursue happiness and ever get there. You can pursue God and then as a by-product finds yourself happy. That is how it really is. That is how it really works. JWP
