Joy
JOy
JoY

Unexpected Joy
Unexplainable jOy
Unattainable in the natural joY

Springing forth JOY!
Bubbling up JOY!

Arising from sorrow,
Grief,
Or any kind of trouble.

Joy that owns the sorrow,
Admits the grief.

Yet looks,
Beyond,
Beside or,
Past it anyway.

Joy in the mundane things.
The smallest things.
Those little rays of hope,

That brighten the DARKest days
Or weeks,
Or months,
Or seasons.

Joy that is unEXPECTED,
UnEXPLAINABLE,
And UnATTAINABLE,
In the natural.

But we are a SUPERnatural people.
We are not bound,
TO or,
BY or,
WITHIN,
The natural world.

Lord open our eyes.
Open our hearts.

So we can see,
Beyond the current,
“Whatever it is”,
To YOU.

You ARE,
The source of EVERY GOOD and PERFECT gift.

Yes, even those,
Or especially those,
That are given on/in/ sometimes with
The HARDest DARKest most JOYless moments
Of our lives.

Psalm 30:5b weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning
Psalm 126:5 Those who sow with tears will reap with songs of joy.
