Joy of the Lord

“Thou wilt shew me the path of life; in Your presences is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore” Psalm 16:11

The new year is here and we are wishing people Happy New Year.  We want people to enjoy the new year putting old memories behind and looking to a bright future.  Some people are very sincere when they give this salutation ,and some say it as a matter of tradition. But is happy as good as it gets?

The Lord offered a better word in place of happy.  It is joy.  Happy is connected with happenings and some are good and some not  so good.  When we depend on our circumstances to determine how our emotions and thinking relate to our happiness, happy falls short of what is being offered by the Lord. His joy comes from delighting to do the will of His Father and prays that His disciples may have this joy fulfilled in themselves.  John 17.22

Discover with us the surprises that await when we choose to see His example, understand the joy He offers, and follow the path that leads to true joy regardless of our outward condition.
