God With Us: Joy

"What insanity compels" us "to shrivel up when there is joy's water to be had here?" Do we "really want joy"? 

If we are "rejecting the joy that is hidden somewhere deep in this moment," are we not "ultimately rejecting God?" 

Whenever we are "blind to God's joy," is it because we "don't believe in His care?"

"In His presence is fullness of joy. He is in this moment.
The well is always here. God is always here--precisely because He does care."

But "we have to want to see the well before" we "can drink from it."

"I cup hands, and all the world is water."

~Quotes from Ann Voscamp's devotional one thousand gifts
