Webster defines Joy as: "the emotion evoked by well-being, success, or good fortune or by the prospect of possessing what one desires: delight".
This is a true world view of Joy - "the prospect of possessing what one desires". Do you desire a perfect marriage, a killer body, enough money to go to Europe, power, well-behaved children or do you desire true Joy?
Desire Christ living in you. Desire the true joy that that brings.
"The LORD gave and the LORD has taken away;
may the name of the LORD be praised.” Job 1:21
