Solid Joys

“… for the joy of the Lord is your strength!”

Nehemiah 8:10 NLT

As of today my writing would be different, I’ll try to share some of my devotions online. Let me start from the name of a devotional app by John Piper “Solid Joys“.

The two words strike me, once I have read it (searching for a devotional app that can help me studying the Word of God). Also I support it with a verse from my book, no Nehemiah’s book from the Old Testament.

For me, a solid joy will only came from the source of true and everlasting happiness and it’s God. Nothing will be compared to the joy that He can give to us. The world can give us the joy we longed for, but it is time bound. 

This kind of joy will give us strength in our life, says in Neh. 8:10. We may eat and drink and gain some strength but still the joy of our Creator can give us strength that will last.
