Joy Comes Even With No Sleep

I was reminded this weekend about joy versus happiness. I was with my youth group at an over nighter. We were being entertained by the comedic styles of 3-2-1 Improv. Mike, Tim and Carl were hilarious and kept our attention for over an hour.

Towards the end they shared the very important message that teens need to hear. Actually, everybody needs to hear it. Not only does the pursuit of pleasure lead to fading happiness, but God designed us for more than that. We are made to live with joy, something that can't be taken away by circumstances.

The guys from 3-2-1 Improv showed by their unique ministry that God has gifted us all and we can pursue that. Each one of us has a unique gifting and calling from God.

I'd probably say more about this, but I believe I mentioned that this was an all nighter. I'm still catching up on sleep. While it may be a temporary pleasure to take a nap, it brings me great joy knowing that I can take one.
