Hummingbird Joy

Joy is something that many of us miss in our life. When joy is missing from our life it means we miss out on God’s blessing and we miss out on God’s strength “the joy of the Lord is my strength” Nehemiah 8:1. Hummingbirds create a lot of joy for many people, just watching them makes us smile and creates childlike wonder. As we observe these fascinating birds, we see that the behavior of hummingbirds mimics the lives of people,

Hummingbird Joy


I’m not generally a joyful person, but I’m learning and I want to be remembered as being joyful. I have so many things to be joyful about, my family, my friends and my faith; I live a very comfortable life and have had a very successful career. I raised a great family and have a wonderful wife; so why do I not feel deep joy. My God is always blessing me and my destiny is sealed and I am confident of eternal life with Jesus. So why do I question joy? 


This book will be a journey for me as well. As I allow the Spirit of God to inspire these words I will learn about joy and I will let God add to my joy. I hope that you will learn to. Maybe you already are full of God's joy but can there ever be too much? Grow as you journey through these chapters let God continue to fill you with his Joy

So what's the difference? 

I think I’m happy but not always (just call me Happy the Dwarf). Happiness is a feeling that is controlled by your circumstances, it changes based on where you are


Joy is an attitude we are joyful independent of circumstances. Finding and feeling good where we are


Joy is defined as the emotion evoked by well-being, success, or good fortune or by the prospect of possessing what one desires and results in delight; Joy is the expression or exhibition of this emotion and provides gaiety.  Joy results in a state of happiness or felicity and great bliss.  And joy is a source or cause of of this delight


The book title is not so much the noun hummingbird and the verb joy; but the adjective hummingbird describing the noun joy. The focus is on the joy and how hummingbirds can help us find joy
