The Pursuit of Joy
Finding joy is a lifelong pursuit for those of us who have been disappointed habitual as children.
Joy is my greatest desire and my most passionate pursuit. Joy is the great neutralizer of disappointment.
In life, I have had to choose to step over happiness and run into the arms of joy!
How I long to be comforted by the power of joy.
When things don't go as planned and when the people I love most do things I hate. Joy Infuses my heart and my life with peace.
Happiness feels good however, joy is choosing to trust our creator and to find identity and security In the evidence of his sacrificial love.
Joy is not the absence of pain, disappointment, or broken-heartedness.
In life discovering and accepting joy is a journey.
Happiness is the vehicle that allows us to experience the benefits of living life in pursuit of joy.
Joy is a journey, not a destination.
Joy is a gift, not a possession.
Joy is a choice, not an emotion.
Amid disappointment joy clear the air. Stop and take it all in Joy is a breath of fresh air.
When joy comes on the scene we are strengthened,and renewed. We are transformed and changed by the light of joy.
