Joy, is it the same as happiness?
We can be happy for a moment with a person or situation but ultimately that fades. Everlasting JOY can only be found in the Lord almighty. Joy unspeakable and full of Glory.
The term HAPPINESS is used in the context of mental or emotional states, including positive or pleasant emotions ranging from contentment to intense joy. It is also used in the context of life satisfaction, subjective well-being, eudaimonia, flourishing and well-being. Wikipedia
Happiness can change, emotions can be like a rollercoaster and you can almost feel schizophrenic at times because this world and people change but God doesn’t change who he is!!
Find JOY in the Lord TODAY!! It’s NOT in things, people or places but in HIM!
John 15:11 ESV
These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full.
Prayer: God forgive me for putting my happiness in things, people or places. I want to know what true JOY is all about. I want to understand your ways and who you are. Open my heart to receive the Joy of the Lord today! In Jesus name I pray AMEN
