“J-O-Y, not y-o-j!” This phrase centers on living each day focusing on Jesus first, others second, and you [ourselves] last, not the other way around. It puts God’s (not my) order in place.
Being involved in LWML, sharing Jesus’ joy through communication … is my face pleasant when I greet others? Do I even greet others or just pass them by? Is my reaction to life and living given in a negative or a positive? If I’m negative, I’m usually focused on what a situation did to me … not asking Jesus for the lesson learned or putting others ahead of myself. In other words, do I live each day with an attitude of gratitude … that’s God’s plan, that’s “J-O-Y, not y-o-j”.
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, (Galatians 5:22).
The Time is NOW! I pray you celebrate J-O-Y every day, as you share God’s blessings through all you do and say.
LWML VP of Communication
