"Live in a constant state of confidence in our God!" ~Eric Ludy
That is what it's about, isn't it?
Joy is the absence of certain things. Fear. Doubt. Anxiety. Pride. Self-protection.
It isn't just the absence of these things.
Yet, these things must be rooted out, denied, abandoned to give space for joy.
A vacuum must be created, so joy can flourish.
May God grant that I not only talk about joy
but live it.
