Psalm 16:11 You will show me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; At Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.

Have you ever felt like blah? Does it seem like life has become mundane and there’s no real excitement? It’s probably because there’s a lack of joy in our lives.

The only way to replenish our joy is to spend time in the presence of God. This time doesn’t have to be religious with incense and candles. It’s simply thinking of the goodness of God. It’s recalling all that He’s done. It’s asking Him what we should do about a certain task. It’s thanking God in advance for the things we’ve prayed for. That’s spending time with God.

Being in God’s presence produces the promise of joy. We’ll experience joy in the simple things like, watching the sunset, playing with our children, or finding humor with people at work.

So if your joy is waning, go replenish it by spending time with God.
