Happiness -or- Joy

  • Happiness is fickle. It lives on the surface, it comes and goes.

    Joy comes from God. It dwells in the deep places. It is centered, enveloped, and saturated in His love.

    “How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God!
    How great is the sum of them!
    If I should count them, they would be more in number than the sand;
    When I awake, I am still with You.”
    —King David (Psalms 139:17,18)
