Five Minute Focus: Happiness vs. Joy

What’s the difference between happiness and joy? According to the world, happiness is gained by stuff, fame, and achievement. Sadly, though, happiness is fleeting. Joy on the other hand, is so much deeper. It’s a rooted satisfaction of knowing that no matter good or bad, the Lord has already won all battles, all struggles. We can bank on that and it’s never going to change. If we wholeheartedly place our trust in God, joy will follow. Today, I challenge you to take five minutes to choose between worldy happiness or the everlasting, ever satisfying joy that comes from knowing and having a deep relationship with our Father.
