Thought of the day 30th of June 2011
Quotes about joy is the topic of the post on the blog ‘Thought for the day’ today. I was thinking maybe too much what to write on this last day of the month and finally decided that joy could be a good theme. Too many people are overpowered by sadness today and see nothing bright for the future. Very few of them can enjoy what they have and not to look at things they do not have. We could feel tremendous bliss daily if we only thought about those little things that God has given us and gives us daily. Let’s hope quotes on joy will help us to see it better and find good reasons for enjoyment.
“Joy lies in the fight, in the attempt, in the suffering involved, not in the victory itself” by Mahatma Gandhi.
I do think that process of doing something is not less important that the very thing that is being done. We experience anticipation, excitement, and challenge when we are in the process of trying to achieve something. Let us keep this joy in the process of doing the simplest ordinary things in life.
“A joy shared is a joy doubled” author unknown.
Unlike physical laws, spiritual laws are different. If you give something material to somebody, you lose it. Speaking in spiritual terms, when you share joy, love and other spiritual things with somebody, those things multiply in your life. And if you be persistent and also transform the principle in the material realm, this can also become true with material things too.
“Cheerfulness is the very flower of health” Proverb.
There would be fewer sick people in the world if there was less sadness. If people laughed more they would never have so many diseases as they have today. So, if you want to be healthy, get more joy today and keep it tomorrow and the day after tomorrow do the same thing.
“Joy is but the sign that creative emotion is fulfilling its purpose” Charles Du Bos.
It is a pretty natural sign of victory, achievement, accomplishment and successful end of some work. Joy and satisfaction comes when we are able to finish something with success.
“No matter what looms ahead, if you can eat today, enjoy today, mix good cheer with friends today enjoy it and bless God for it” by Henry Ward Beecher.
Since life is now, you should not plan that you will enjoy it tomorrow, but not today. Who knows, maybe you will not be alive tomorrow. It does not mean you should indulge yourself with some sensual, carnal and sinful pleasures of this world, but that you should grow the fruit of joy by simply taking opportunity to enjoy everything that God gives you. Don’t forget to thank God for everything He gives you.
I hope the quotes about joy blessed you a little.
