Joy & Happiness

Happiness is conditional, based on whether your circumstances and surroundings are working in your favor or in a way that you believe is good for you.

But joy is a choice! You can have joy in the midst of pain and flat out chaos. You can have joy in circumstances where things aren’t going the way you’d hoped and especially when God says no. There’s joy in knowing that God’s “no” means something. It could mean protection, a lesson, of “I have something much better for you”.

Today, I’m choosing joy, the joy of the Lord which is my strength. I hope you choose the same!

Be blessed & encouraged,
Shannon

  1. Thanks for the encouragement. James 1:2-4 says,” dear brothers and sisters, when troubles of any kind come your way, consider it an opportunity for great joy. For you know that when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow. So let it grow, for when your endurance is fully developed, you will be perfect and complete, needing nothing.”
