It’s common knowledge that actions speak louder than words. So what are our actions saying?
I’m sure there are days when my actions don’t say Joy. When I’m frustrated with life, and just trying to get through the day – yup – not much joy there, and I’m sure that whoever I encounter that day can feel that.
So what are things we can do to show Joy in action, not just in our marriage or our relationships, but everywhere.
The verse that has been stuck in my head all week when thinking about this topic is 2 Corinthians 9:7. God loves a cheerful giver. Cheerful; a synonym for joyful. God loves a Joyful giver. I know that this verse is common for tithes and offerings, but I think it can apply to so many things. I give my energy to so many things in a day or week. So what’s my attitude during that? When I’m making meals for my family, or someone else’s and I being joyful? Am I joyful while cleaning my house? What about folding laundry? When I’m grocery shopping am I leaving the impression of joy on the others I encounter? What about when I’m out for a walk?
There are so many little things we do in a day that when we put joy into our actions we can impact so many other people.
So this week I’m challenging myself to put more joy into my actions.
Our link up is next week! I would love to hear from you all about how Joy has impacted your month.
