Daily Meditation: Joy

We all need help maintaining our personal spiritual practice. We hope that these daily meditations, prayers and mindful awareness exercises can be part of bringing spirituality alive in your life.

Today's meditation features a song by singer/songwriter Iron & Wine. What's bringing you joy today?

Joy by Iron & Wine

Deep inside the heart of this troubled man,
There's an itty bitty boy tugging hard at your hand.
Born bitter as a lemon but you must understand that you've been bringing me joy.
And I'll only lie when you don't want the truth.
I'm only frightened 'cause you finally gave me something to lose.
And it's as loud as a thunderclap but you hear it too.
But you've been bringing me joy.

Deep inside the heart of this crazy mess,
I'm only calm when I get lost within your wilderness.
Born crooked as a creek, didn't come to contest that you've been bringing me joy.
When I'm alive I'm living for you,
When I'm a bluebird dying, but their singing the blues,
And it's a heartfelt silly sort of bumbling tune about how you're bringing me joy.
