Finding Joy

Joy is not in people,

Not in being thought of

highly, or at all.

Joy is not in having,

Not in holding,

Not in owning.

Joy is not in buying,

Not in gaining things,

And not, for certain,

Not contained in

Money’s empty call.

Joy is not in praise,

Is not in numbers,

Not in goals achieved or lists.

Joy is not in climbing to the top

Shift by shift.

Abundant life in Christ our Lord

Is never found in stuff.

This life of joy is found in finding Christ–

All in all,

“More than all in Him I find,”

My Infinite-Enough.
