"Taste and see that the Lord is good. Oh, the joys of those who take refuge in him!" Psalm 34:8

...you get this unexplainable, indescribable, inexpressible, joyful feeling way deep inside; something so good you want to get up and dance around, shout-out from the highest place, stop strangers on the street and tell them, "Hey, you gotta give this a try". A burning desire to praise Him and pray and give thanks develops because your heart is so over-flowing with thanks and gratitude. All you can think about is God and Jesus and how much He loves us.
You develop an insatiable desire to saturate yourself with the Word and pray without ceasing. This is kind-of what a "taste of the Lord" is like; an introduction of how awesome it is to feel God's love in your heart. The more you pursue Him, the stronger this feeling gets. Could this be JOY ?

  1. Very thought provoking! I think it is joy, but not the same joy that others talk about, but pure joy, found within your heart deep deep down, when you believe in the Lord and have accepted him and feel God's love in your heart. I think that feeling only gets stronger with time.

    Hugs to you, my friend.
