Thankful Thursday

Thursday, May 15, 2014

Joy doesn’t happen to you, it happens in you.
 “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy…” (Galatians 5:22)


What makes your joy EXTRAordinary?

Extra means additional, beyond or more than what is usual, expected, or necessary. There's something about the EXTRA which comes before ordinary that makes joy more phenomenal.

Having an extra kind of joy doesn't mean that your celebrations are counterfeit or that your praise is a put on; it means you don’t wait for perfect conditions to be joyful, you just are.

Are you...extra? Are you going beyond what God expects? Are you exceeding limits that you set for yourself or are you doing the bare minimum to get by? Do you do the usual or do you create unbelievable circumstances around you?

EXTRAordinary joy goes beyond our bumps and bruises to share stories of healing.
EXTRAordinary joy celebrates whenever God’s people do great things.
EXTRAordinary joy gives thanks for the unexpected setbacks because the testimony leads back to Jesus.

How will you be extra thankful today?
