Joy Room


Best Day of Your Life

The night before I had to receive my divorce papers, Jesus said in a dream that the next day would be the best day of my life.  I asked the Lord, "How can this be?" and He said, "You have me, don't you?"

Several weeks later, I was still in the midst of divorce proceedings when the Lord added to the previous dream by showing me Christmas morning with a little child waiting at the top of the steps to get their presents under the tree.  He said, "Every day is the best day of your life because you have Me, and I have good gifts to open each day for My children."

Flipping the Truck

One day, I flipped my truck.  Jesus came and put His arm around me, kissed my face, and began to laugh.  I thought my life was over!  But Jesus was having joy in me.  There had been a large jack in the car which had almost hit me and killed me, but Jesus laughed and said, "That almost got you, didn't it?" Then we both laughed together.

Jed Driving Story

My son Jed and I were doing a “two and a half” off the high dive when I hit my ear and ruptured my eardrum, so I couldn’t get on a plane. So I had to make a long drive. My good-hearted, loving son said, “I’ll drive with you.”
We stayed the night in Garden City, Kansas. We got up in the morning, talking and enjoying one another. I had to lay down in the back while Jed was driving. After a while, I see a sign that says “Jesus Saves.” I thought, “I remember that sign...” We realized then that we had been going the wrong way for an hour and a half! We just returned to joy. We just enjoyed ourselves. Even though we were way off course, it just meant more time together.
If we return to joy, even though it seems like we are going the wrong direction, we still come out better!
