Joy is not a brief feeling, nor is it based on our circumstances. While there are many things in our lives that can make us happy, the Bible tells us that the source of true joy is Jesus. Through Him, we can overcome difficult seasons in our life while sustaining our joy. We pray that these scriptures are a blessing to you!
