Searching for Joy


It doesn’t seem like there are a lot of things to laugh at or be joyful about these days. We struggle with COVID-19 statistics, animosity, violence, and a host of other issues. We are often surrounded by negativity and anger. But what we don’t realize is that it is at these most difficult moments that we should look for joy and laughter.


Dear God,
ife has been tough lately and we’re tired.
There doesn’t seem to be
as much to be joyful about these days.
Help us remember that
joy and laughter can be healing balms
during our struggles.
Inspire us to stop and look
beyond that which is weighing us down
and rediscover all that there
is to be joyous about in the world.


Make a list of the things that bring you joy. Pick one and do that today.
