Pie in the face causes joy!

JOY the 2nd fruit

Joy in the youth group that night!

The Greek translation of joy is CHARA, derived from the word CHARIS, which is the Greek word for GRACE. This is important to note, for it tells us categorically that chara is produced by charis of God.
This means joy is not a human-based emotional state, that comes and goes. Rather, true joy is Divine in its nature, it is accessible and you can choose to walk in it!

🎉🎉🎉In a church so merry and bright,
On a youth night filled with delight,
Children giggled, with hearts so light,
For it was the day to throw pies, oh what a sight!

Staff stood in line, with faces so fair,
Ready to embrace the pies in the air,
Laughter echoed, filling the sacred space,
As the children reveled in this joyous chase.

With glee in their eyes and a tad of mischief in their hearts, They aimed for the staff playing their parts,
Creamy pies flew with a colorful grace,
Creating messes upon each staff member’s face.

Oh, the joy that filled that holy hall,
As the children laughed and had a ball,
Their spirits lifted, their worries set free,
For this true moment, they were truly carefree.

Amidst the whipped cream and joyful cheers,
The message was clear, loud and clear,
That joy is a gift from the Almighty above,
A reminder that His love is boundless, like a dove.

For in these moments of innocent mirth,
We glimpse a glimpse of heaven’s worth,
The joy that emanates from the Lord,
Filling our hearts, like a golden chord.

So let us cherish these moments of glee,
And embrace the joy gifted so freely,
For in the laughter and the childlike fun,
We find the essence of a life well-spun.

In youth nights like these, we come alive,
With hearts ablaze, our spirits thrive,
For joy is a reflection of God’s grace,
A glimpse of heaven’s eternal embrace.

Hebrews 12:1-2 words it this way: “Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of wit- nesses, let us rid ourselves of every burden and sin that clings to us and persevere in running the race that lies before us while keeping our eyes fixed on Jesus, the leader and perfecter of faith. For the sake of the joy that lay before him he endured the cross, despising its shame, and has taken his seat at the right of the throne of God.”

It can also be a Spirit-given expression that flourishes best in hard times, should you allow it!
