It’s easier to be happy when you have joy.

Happiness is a personal decision. It’s something that you must be committed to be, despite what’s going on around you. It’s easier to be happy when you have joy, because joy is something that the world can’t give you and the world can’t take from you. Joy comes from God, and keeps you from breaking down into despair and defeat when the world is crumbling all around you. Look at what the scriptures say concerning joy. Hebrews 12:2, “Fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.” In John 15:11 Jesus said, “I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete.” How does these two scriptures apply to you? Glad you asked, because you have to make it personal. Realize that the same joy that Jesus has is in you, and His joy fills any and all voids in a person’s life when they accept Him as their personal Savior. His joy makes us certain of who we are in Him. His joy keeps us going when it made more sense to give up long time ago. It’s a joy to persevere through this life because we know that Heaven is our ultimate goal. We’re just going through, but we’re coming out! If our focus is Heavenward, then that’s where our joy will be, and we will have the mindset of Christ. No matter what you go through, know Heaven awaits you, and let that motivate you to keep on keeping on in the faith and on the assignment in which God has called you in Christ. ❤️
