Joy Formidable and the Abundant Life

A feeling of great pleasure or happiness inspiring respect through impressively large, intense and powerful means, available in large quantities, which separates us from inorganic matter, including the capacity for growth, reproduction, functional activity, and continual change preceding death...that is a synopsis of having Joy Formidable and the Abundant Life.

When one embraces Formidable Joy, the only outcome possible is an Abundant Life!

For me Joy is most formidably expressed and experienced through music.  One of the bands who takes their name seriously in this endeavor is a band from London, England..."The Joy Formidable", who I will have the pleasure of meeting at SXSW in Austin next month. 

Another musical expression of Joy is found in Bach's, "Jesus Joy in Man's Desiring".

After all, Jesus himself said that he came, "so that you might have life, and have it abundantly!"  John 10:10 

Joy increases our capacity for growth, reproduction (and it's pleasurable side effects), activity...and also gives us the fortitude and courage to continual change as we face the challenges of life...which the ultimate challenge we face is death.  

Yes, the Yin and Yang, Life and Death are immersed in the waters of Joy!

Fear not only a phrase repeated the most in Biblical's also the Mantra we are to Chant as we travel the highway of Joy!

A change is a coming...the question is will you accept it with Joy Formidable and the Abundant Life?

Find your Joy and choose wisely!
