True Joy

The joy you feel from getting a new car or your sport team winning is not God's joy. This is an excitement, an ego adrenaline. If your sport team lost, you would feel angry or depressed, controlled by your emotions. This up and down, being tossed like a rag doll and subject to events outside of you, is not of Him, and it is not a way to live life.

His joy is always there, regardless of the outer circumstances. That is the joy of the Kingdom, your inheritance. This is a joy that comes from Oneness. 

How do you differentiate between ego excitement and true joy? If your sport team loses, you may be disappointed, but the joy of life and having His Presence will still be there, and you will soon forget about the team losing. And true joy is always accompanied by large gratitude.

These posts are similar to the over 2300 contained on The Divine Speaks website (www.thedivinespeaks.com) where God gives YOU the one that you need to hear at that time. Lawrence is the author of several books on emotional and spiritual healing, including the latest "The Divine Speaks (Volume 1): Sayings About Life, Love, and God." which can be purchased on Amazon (link below). Now the statements you have enjoyed electronically are presented in this new book in a divinely guided order which takes the reader on a powerful journey of remembrance, bringing about great healing and personal growth.
