Joy is a Gift from God
Joy is not something that we have to earn or work for. It’s a choice, and it was freely given to us. But if we allow ourselves to be wrapped around our circumstances and become angry or disappointed or hopeless, if we allow those seeds to take root in our hearts, we cheat ourselves out of this joy. It’s a trap, and it causes us to sell our joy cheaply, and get nothing good in return. Don’t let that happen to you. Accept this wondrous gift, revel in it, and choose to experience your God-given joy every day.
