But the fruit of the Spirit is . . . joy Galatians 5:22
I want more joy. I can come to my desk with the spirit of drudgery or the spirit of worship. With worship comes Joy.
“We have forgotten that the call to creativity is a call to worship.”
Somewhere along the way I learned that work was the opposite of worship. I learned wrong. When I engage in my work as worship, I can write with joy. If I am writing with a sense of the wonder and expectation I revel in my work and experience joy:
The joy of creating.
The joy of connecting with God.
The joy of sharing myself with others.
It helps to come with a sense of expectation to the desk instead of dread. When I lose myself in the writing I do my best work.
“When you do things from your soul, you feel a river moving in you, a joy.”
“Joy is what happens to us when we allow ourselves to recognize how good things really are.”
“when we are powerless to do a thing, it is a great joy that we can come and step inside the ability of Jesus”
Corrie ten Boom
How do you experience joy? Do you want more?
