Many times when we hear the word joy, we think of the word happiness. Well happiness can be an emotion that comes and goes, but joy is a state of being. To have true joy one must be connected to Christ, for being connected with him and following his instructions allows the fullness of joy to spread within your hearts.
When you are properly connected you are able to ask the Father what you will in Christ name and it shall be done for you. This brings joy to the heart to see your prayers answered.
The Beauty of Christ joy is that it endures past happy emotions or circumstances. If you love the way Christ calls for us to love, abide in him and allow his words to abide in you, his joy is yours to keep! Can you imagine a life when you have joy everyday!!
I challenge you to learn how to truly connect with Christ. He is the one that can give you strength and power when you feel weak. His joy is our foundation. Christ is the ultimate power source. He cares about even the little things that are causing you not to be happy.
Jesus came so that we may be connected to him and our Heavenly Father. Answer the journaling questions below. They will help you connect with Jesus in a new way! Feel fee to leave comments below! If you have questions please feel free to ask.
May Peace and JOY be with you all!
