Hello one and all!
Today I am off to speak at a women’s conference in Sparta, NC. The subject of the conference is joy, and if I’m being honest, I was asked to have a title prepared before I was prepared to prepare a title. What?
Basically, I usually name a talk after I figure out what it’s going to be about. This time, it was the other way around. But, amazingly enough, God gave me a title…and then He pulled the words together and managed to somehow use me in the whole process.
The title of my session is “ReJoy”. No, you didn’t read it wrong! It isn’t “rejoice” but “ReJoy”. I’ll be posting the whole session up soon so be on the look out for that! Pray today that women would learn about joy, which is so foundational to our faith. As Billy Sunday, the 20th-century pro-baseball player turned evangelist, said, “If you have no joy in your religion, there’s a leak in your Christianity somewhere.”
To that end, I was listening to a new worship band as I was getting ready this morning, and I think this song pretty accurately captures this idea of joy and ReJoy. So enJoy.
