Today's topic is going to be on joy! On saturday I went to Del Grosso's amusement park to celebrate my 11th birthday! It was an awesome day! I had ALL OF MY FRIENDS in Pennsylvania there and we rode all sorts of rides like bumper cars, spinny rides, huge towers that you go to the top then you drop to the bottom, and lots of other stuff! I had a lot of joy two days ago! You are supposed to have joy in the good time AND THE BAD times, though! I know having joy in the hard times is rough but we need to know that God is in control! That is how I get through the day and can still be happy when things go wrong. I hope you do the same as well.
Psalm 66:1 - "Shout with joy to God all the Earth!" NIV
Before I get this started I just wanted to let you know that I will from now on use life examples.
Now this is a funny story about a bunny and a raven having a battle in OUR front lawn. I know it sounds crazy but it happened 3-4 days ago! A couple of day ago I was in my math class (I do home school on the computer) and I see a bunny and a raven. The raven was going after this hole the bunny made over and over and the bunny chased it away over and over. They did this for an HOUR! In the end the bunny won, don't worry. This reminded me of David and Goliath how they thought David would die but he won with just a fling of a rock and God watching over him. It made me think of that because I THOUGHT that the bunny might die but he did not. God can help us like that. It could be any hard time, not just if you are in a war. I wanted you to know that because I think some people just forget about that and think that they have to do something alone. Don't think that! God is always with you.
