[About the Author] Hello! I’m Bethany Joy – a follower of my Lord Jesus Christ. My greatest passion is to live to glorify my Savior through spreading His joy to others! In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my dear Church family, delighting in God’s handiwork in creation through gardening and biking (anything outdoors!), Bible memorization, meaningful conversations with friends, studying history, singing and playing music, and speaking out for the unborn.
[About the Blog] Isaiah 61, the inspiration behind this blog, is a chapter that is dear to me. Before I knew the Lord, my heart was sinful, shameful and joy-less. Through believing on the Lord Jesus Christ – the One who proclaims freedom to the captive – and trusting in His blood alone for cleansing, I have come to the realization that the Christian life is one full of joy. Knowing that a Christian’s joy is to be rooted on Christ, who continues forever and is the same yesterday, today and forever (Hebrews 7:24 + Hebrews 13:8), I can therefore say I have “an everlasting joy”!
Through this blog, I hope to share with my readers this truth: the more you come to know Christ and His Word in your heart, the more joy you will experience. Not a joy that is just known to yourself, but one that is so exceeding, jubilant and everlasting that it will naturally overflow into the lives of others.
“God, my exceeding joy” -Psalm 43:4
