A Closet Full of JOY, Week 1

A few months ago I asked a very talented writer to develop a series that would provide “instantaneous joy” for you women on the move.  It would be inspiring yet also give the reader Scripture they could meditate on during their busy day.

And “voila”,  here you have it, “A Closet Full of JOY”.   That talented writer is Myrna Jean Hart and she is my big sis.  So we invite you to our closet, a Closet Full of JOY.  Why joy?  Because God’s Word, spoken through His Holy Spirit, will enlighten and delight you, even in the midst of your trials.

We also invite you to “hang up something cute” in our closet. (We even take other clothing pieces that might work for our ladies–shoes, hats, and other accessories.   Before you know it, we will be trading “beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness.” (Isaiah 61:3).  I share with you three (3) garments from the closet to keep you clothed  for the rest of the week.   Help us grow our closet with God’s lovely joy.

“But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called Today.”  Hebrew 3:13
As Christians we often ask the Holy Spirit, “What can I do to indicate that You live within me and help someone today? It is as simple as the scripture says, “encourage” one another daily.

“Let the wise listen and add to their learning, and let the discerning get guidance.” Proverbs l:5
Have we missed an opportunity today to gain from God’s wonderful wisdom for our lives today? Don’t worry God will give us a second chance to be quite, listen and learn.

“A cheerful heart brings a smile to your face; a sad heart makes it hard to get through the day. Proverbs 15:13
How many people have you let see that beautiful smile on your face today? You would be surprised at the life changing effect a simple smile can have in enabling others to get through a difficult day.
