It’s a Joy Day

I love how God patiently repeats a theme so I can get it.

Today’s rotating Bible reading (John 16:16-24) from Call to Growth yielded these 2 scriptures, which leapt off the page to my eyes:

1.  22 So also you have sorrow now, but I will see you again, and your hearts will rejoice, and no one will take your joy from you.  (John 16:22, ESV, emphasis added)

2.  24 Until now you have asked nothing in my name. Ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be full.  (John 16:24, ESV, emphasis added)

Joy, and joy.

Later, when reviewing my Jesus Project verses, the new verse for the week of September 6 was:


Joy again.

So, I told my husband about this coincidence, and I proclaimed the day, for whatever reason, a joy day.

Later, the hubbs came in and showed me the randomly-generated verse of the day from his You Version app:


Joy again.

Looking at him knowingly, I said, “See? It’s a joy day.”

We don’t know why it’s a joy day today yet. We’re waiting to find out. We’ll keep you posted.
