I am a wellspring of joy.
An artesian well reaches the surface with great power when tapped. Pressure allows the water to flow freely. Similarly, when we draw on the deep wellspring of divine joy, we experience a great relief of pressure, even when life seems overwhelming. We were meant for joy and happiness; we are joyous by nature. Joy does not depend upon any person, condition, or thing. So I choose to move and flow with life’s events, all the while tapping in to my source of inner joy. I take the time to breathe fully and move my attention into my deepest self. The flowing life energy of God nourishes me with bubbling joy that fills me and overflows to others, rippling forth to everyone I meet.
I speak these things in the world so that they may have my joy made complete in themselves.—John 17:13
