Are you a joy-filled girl? Are you wondering if it’s even possible to lead a joyful life?
It absolutely is because joy is a gift from God. This life will be filled with struggles, ups and downs, and times of living in the valley and on the mountain top, but God’s provision surpasses any of the experiences that attempt to interfere with our joy and happiness.
The true joy and happiness we seek is not of this world, but of our Heavenly Father. Our Christian walk and commitment to Christ allows us to mesh the two together so we can enjoy the peace and harmony that He desires for us.
It’s a conscious decision every day to be joyful, carry an attitude of gratitude, and live with contentment despite life’s challenges. Author Mandy Hale says, “Real happiness means letting go of what you think your life is supposed to look like and celebrating it for everything it is,” joy-filled through Christ.
Shift your thinking from helpless to hopeful.
