Joy needs a Vacuum

"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.


  1. That's great, Monique. Having lost my dad recently, still I have joy as I trust fully in Him. Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving your encouraging words. So appreciated.

  2. I never thought of it that way! You are an example of joy to me, Monique!
