How to Have a Joyful Life When You're Not Feeling It.
Word from Papa God for you ...by Amy Meyer
Joy, what do you think it means to live in a place of joy? Papa asked.
Do you want to live there? Joy is freely given to all those who will receive it. I (Papa) am Joy. When you knew your sins were completely forgiven past, present, and future, wasn't it the joy you experienced? If you had joy, then, why do you not have joy now? What has changed? Do you really believe...
My view of you has changed? Am I asking you to do extra to appease Me? If you have to do that, then what I gave you was not a gift.
Today I was hoping you could make up your mind to start living out of a mindset that everything I give you in life is a gift. Not, because you have earned it in some way. Earning is part of an old system that I pronounced dead, demolished, and took away, never to return. My covenant blessings are gifts and are received by those who believe. You are never to work for them but only to receive every single one with joy and thanksgiving. Live from this place, and you will truly honor Me.
I am saddened by My children trying to earn the gifts I have freely given them. Every time you try to earn something from Me, it separates us because you will never feel good enough to earn My blessings. What was meant to draw Me closer to you, you have turned down because you either felt unworthy, which is rooted in false humility, or you have decided it was better to earn My gifts so that you could pat yourself on the back and feel good about what you "accomplished." Both approaches cause separation from Me. What more can I do to show you that I have done everything so that you could always freely and boldly approach Me, run into My arms, and gladly receive My love, as a Father and as My son or daughter would.
If you are looking for a joyful life, it will never be found by earning it. My joy is freely given. Let Me shower you with all My goodness! Try it! You will never return to the old way you used to approach Me. Change your mindset. Say, “Today, I am going to receive all of God's goodness without any help on my part." A heart of praise creates a life of joy, regardless of your circumstances. I will use everything that happens to you in life and turn it around for good. I am on your side! Now that's something to be joyful about!
Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom. Luke 12:32
Praying this encouraged you! He love's you and wants to reassure you!
Much Love, Amy
