"Terkadang hal-hal sederhana seperti senyuman,sapaan 'halo' itu jauh lebih baik daripada "idealisme-idealisme rohani" yang orientasinya adalah diri sendiri,punya maksud-maksud tertentu,tanpa/minim kasih dan yang tidak pernah di aplikasikan sehingga orang lain bosan & muak mendengarnya"

How to get back our joy ?

"The Kingdom Of God is not a matter of what we eat or drink, but of living a life of goodness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit."  - Romans 14:17(NLT)

This is all about "losing things", semua dari kita pasti pernah mengalami kehilangan sesuatu,apakah itu uang, waktu, tenaga, atau bahkan mungkin orang yang paling kita kasihi..

Tapi tahukah, hal yang paling menyedihkan & berbahaya ternyata adalah kalo kita kehilangan sukacita kita(joy)..

So, how to get our joy back ?


I need to admit I've lost my joy.
"Restore to me the joy of your salvation." Psalm 51:12 (NIV)

 
Analyze the cause.
"Let us examine our ways and test them, and let us return to the Lord." Lamentation 3:40(NIV)
Unbalance ?
Unused?
Unconfessed?
Unresolved?
Undernourished? 


Correct what's wrong.
"If you obey mu commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have obeyed my Father's commands and remain in his love. I have told you this so that my JOY may be in you and that your joy may be complete." John 15:10-11 (NIV) 


Think about what's good in your life.
"The Lord has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy."
Psalm 126:3(NIV)
You can start count & make a list your personal blessing that The Lord has given to you.. 


Spend time with God every day.
"Your words what sustain me. they bring great JOY." Jer 15:16(TLB)

"Until now you have not asked for anything in my name. Ask and you will receive, and your joy will be complete." John 16:24(NIV)

"Come, let us sing for joy to the LORD;
let us shout aloud to the Rock of our salvation." Psalm 95:1 (NIV)
READ, PRAY, & SING. 


Get your joy back by finding a way to give back.
"God has...given us new lives from Christ Jesus;and long ago he planned that we should spend these lives in helping others." Eph. 2:10(LB)

"...There is more happiness in giving than in receiving." Acts 20:35(TEV) 


Tell somebody about Jesus.
"There is joy in heaven over one sinner who changes his heart & life..." Luke 15:7 (NCV)
