“We cannot cure the world of sorrows, but we can choose to live in joy.” —Joseph Campbell
How Do I Choose Joy?
We experience many sorrows in life and bad things happen to all of us. Our circumstances can go south in an instant and rob us of our happiness.
We may grieve the loss of a loved one, face the fears and effects of illness, or lose our security when we lose or change jobs.
How do we choose joy in the midst of painful changes and challenges?
“I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you.” Ezekiel 36:26 NIV
This is good news! Joy does not depend on circumstances. We are free to choose how we react to our challenges and disappointments.
As believers in Christ, the Holy Spirit equips us to lean into our faith and choose JOY!
