#215: Holy Spirit, Bring on the Fruit! Week 3: Joy (Feat. Madeline Jones)
What does it mean to "have joy?"
We are in the third episode of our new series. This week our 2nd daughter, Madeline, joins us to talk about living with JOY!
We are slowing down our rhythm and releasing episodes EVERY OTHER WEEK!
What is this series all about?
A word we received from God for 2023 is culture. Culture is one our ministry's main themes. It was highlighted to us at the end of 2022 and we are diving in with all we've got! If you feel like your family's culture is "off" then this series is for you. We are intentionally diving into Galatians 5 and learning how to live and walk by the Spirit.
JOY: Gladness despite circumstances.
Joy is a choice in many circumstances and comes from abiding in the father. Jesus said in Hebrews that for the joy set before him he endured the cross. We get to choose joy as we endure trails and circumstances in life. Don, Suz, and Madeline talk about finding joy in different seasons of parenting. No matter what circumstance you are faced with, having a joyful perspective is possible.
Joy is a gift from God to help lighten the burdens of life. He designed us to walk in joy. He wants us to walk with Him so He can give us daily joy – despite our circumstances. God is a good father and wants to release joy over your heart today.
If you need joy today, this podcast is for you!
