Could you use a touch of joy? Joy is your birthright as a child of the God who delights in you and celebrates your existence. God approves of joy. It is what he made you for. Yet we live in a world at war against gladness. From our relationships, to our careers, to our health, to our hopes and dreams, a conspiracy of sorrow seeks to steal the joy that the Bible says is our strength. Life’s struggles are real. But so is God’s kingdom and his intention to fill our hearts to overflowing. In the midst of the daily grind, even in the face of heartbreak and mourning, joy is just a choice away.In thirty-one sensitive, insightful devotions, Dr. Charles Stanley explores the nature of joy through the lens of Scripture. In his personal, straightforward style, he speaks to the stuff of life we all contend with and shows us the Bible’s path toward the heart of joy. Whether we’re dealing with anger, or unforgiveness, or loss, or disappointment, God is able to turn our circumstances into gateways of blessing. Often, the blessing lies in getting God’s perspective, not ours. A Touch of His Joy shifts our focus to the character and purposes of the One who stores our tears in a bottle, and in his own time, uses them to refract the light of his love into rainbows of blessing that delight our soul.Filled with beautiful, black-and-white photographs taken by the author in the Rocky Mountains, this devotional contemplates the joy that fills the creation Dr. Stanley’s camera so poignantly captures. A Touch of His Joy will touch you with joy, as you discover God’s multifaceted love for you in the ups and downs of life.
