Find the beat within yourself to get your joy back. Close your eyes. Take a deep breath. Smile. Hug yourself. Laugh. Keep laughing. Why you may ask? Everything begins with you. Doesn't it feel good to smile? To have your eyes closed and think of nothing but whatever makes you happy? To have colorful memories dance in your mind of the wonderful things that just make you smile on the inside. Some may picture God, a man or a woman, parents, or children. Some may picture that brand new luxury car or money. You may even picture the day you walked out of the hospital, a family gathering, your new home, or a vacation. Whatever it is, just enjoy the moment of a happy place. Feel the beat, the vibrations, and the energy of being truly happy. Taking a break from all of the chaos that is going on in the world is necessary for peace. It recharges your soul and frees your mind. Don't you deserve that moment? Take the time to bring a little joy into your life. If you don't do it, who will?

DO NOT ALLOW ANYONE TO STEAL YOUR JOY!
Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance.
1 Peter 1:8-9
Though you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy,for you are receiving the end result of your faith, the salvation of your souls
Nehemiah said, “Go and enjoy choice food and sweet drinks, and send some to those who have nothing prepared. This day is holy to our Lord. Do not grieve, for the joy of the Lord is your strength.”
For his anger lasts only a moment, but his favor lasts a lifetime; weeping may stay for the night, but rejoicing comes in the morning.
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
Until now you have not asked for anything in my name. Ask and you will receive, and your joy will be complete.
