JOY defined – the inner attitude of rejoicing in one’s salvation regardless of outward circumstances. One of the fruits of a right relationship with God.(http://faithlifewomen.com/2012/09/what-the-bible-says-about-joy/)
My life is all the circumstances that so many others have, happy, sad, busy, lonely, full and stressful, and boring…you know…normal. My choice is to be joyful even when it is a struggle to do so. My hope is in Jesus Christ, his life, death and resurrection and the word of the Holy Bible. Talking to God used to be hard to do…but now is a blessing and a relationship. My prayer journal is a tool that has brought joy to my day.
