by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies – What’s Your Barometer Reading?
Editor’s note: Nancy Campbell again ordering all of her followers to have only happy emotions no matter what. Ten kids and no plumbing? So what, be joyful (or take a whole lot of Valiums, sorry, my suggestion my bad) and wait for the slow man to fix your plumbing. Sorry, I’m not buying it. There are some circumstances where it’s perfectly normal to have less than joyful emotions. Not having plumbing would be one of those times.
What’s the joy on your barometer today? A tiny bit of joy? Perhaps you’re half way up the barometer? Anyone up to the top and overflowing?
Psalm 16:11 says: “In thy presence is fullness of joy.” Fullness means up to the top and overflowing. How do you get to experience this amount of joy? Only one way. By living in His presence. It’s not according to Your circumstances or what trauma you face.
My daughter, Evangeline was sharing with us on Sunday how God challenged her about this. Her husband has been redoing their kitchen and renewing all the plumbing in their house. With ten children she has had no stove and no water for two and a half months! Can you be filled with joy in the midst of this? Not in the natural, but yes, as you live in the presence of the Lord.
If we have no joy, or only a tiny bit of joy, it’s because we live in the flesh. We are fixed on our problems instead. Dear mother, fix your eyes on the Lord today. Live in His presence, for it is an absolute face that in His presence is FULLNESS OF JOY.
