Joy Is Found By Keeping The Right Focus!Find Joy in God and people!

Please contact us if you have questions or comments or want encouragement.

I appreciate what Leo Buscaglia once said, “Worry never robs tomorrow of its sorrow; it only saps today of its joy.” Joy and happiness are two different things, joy is more of an attitude, and happiness is more of a fleeting emotion that comes and goes. Remember that all good things come from the Lord, and those are the things you will find joy in. It does not come from material things, although material things are necessary.

Our goal ought not to be obtaining joy or happiness but rather to obey God and do His will, and as a byproduct of obedience, God will reward us with pleasure and satisfaction. Our primary joy comes from the Lord, and secondary joy comes from the people who love and love us. The last happiness comes from material things like a car, home, vacation, etc.  But when we get the primary and the secondary and the previous joys mixed up, lack of peace and absolute joy flies out the window! ~ Bill Greguska

Galatians 5:22  But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness.

Joy is determined by how and what our focus is on. Grief comes in many different ways; The loss of someone due to death, the loss of a job, a medical diagnosis, and after a breakup. You might think you’re lonely because you miss dating someone, but this might not always be true. Please don’t trust casual acquaintances to be real friends you can trust with everything; please be careful with who is trustworthy and who is not. There’s nothing at all wrong with having many acquaintances. Don’t let Satan steal your peace and happiness in any situation you find yourself in.

Joy in the Midst of Difficulties

 (This section is from The Book I wrote)

Lord, after struggling with it for a while, I have become committed to seeing the glass half full rather than half empty. If you are for me, who can be against me? If things make my life difficult, I keep in mind that “this too shall pass.”  I need to be thankful for every moment that you give me and try to use it in the best way I can to glorify you. 

Lord, I find joy in seeking your will in my life. Help me to focus on you, rather than people and things, to find joy. Finding happiness in you is real and worthwhile. I can find joy within my difficulties by encouraging others.  

James 1:2 ~ Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds.

There are souls in this world which have the gift of finding joy everywhere and of leaving it behind them when they go. ~ Jean Paul, German romantic writer best known for his humorous novels and stories.
