I go back and forth with how much I post on my Facebook. One of the things that I like to do in response to negativity, complaining, or even overshare of personal things..is to post encouraging and challenging thoughts. I posted this last night.
The biggest difference between joy and happiness.
Happiness is temporal based on uncertain circumstances. As long as “this or that” is good I am happy.
Joy is eternal and not limited to the present circumstance. Joy is having God’s perspective while uncertain things take place.
Joy is having an umbrella and also trusting that without one you will still make it through the storm.
Mathew 5:45.. and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.
Joy is a internal peace that will enable us to stand in dark, troublesome, and even fearful events.
Joy is evidence that you are trusting in what we don’t see.
Joy is supernatural and a practice. Re-Joice means to practice Joy over and over and over again(thanks Kris Vallotton for that quote)
Joy gets more sentences then happiness because it lasts longer.
