Joy is not happiness. Although, happiness can come from joy.
Joy is a constant light that is not too bright nor too dim. It burns steadily in your soul and keeps you balanced. It is not hindered by the extremes of emotions. Joy can be felt in the midst of sorrow.
Sudden and unexpected tragedy causes serious pain and heartache. But God has provided joy to overcome the sorrow. It is the bulwark that keeps the sorrow from overtaking you.
Whether you believe in God or not, you may have already experienced the joy I am writing about today. That’s because God has given it to all.
Let joy be your strength today!
