Seeking Joy … in YOUR Everyday Ordinary Life

Seeking Joy … in YOUR Everyday Ordinary Life

Joy is …

Trusting in God’s love despite our fears and doubts
Believing that God never abandons us – Never!
Hoping in God’s love regardless of our circumstances
A Gift from God that no one can take away

Americans are often obsessed with the pursuant of happiness, and when even our best efforts come up short, we lose hope. When instead we seek the “Kingdom of God and His righteousness”, “Trust the Lord with all our heart”, and allow the “Joy of the Lord to be our Strength” — despite the state of the world around us, we will find JOY!
