Seeking Joy-A Lifetime Journey

Seeking joy is something that is a lifetime journey. When there is grief, stress, hardship, we may wonder where God is, and seeking joy can feel next to impossible. I would like to offer a few thoughts that perhaps will be helpful;
  • Look for a tiny thing to be thankful for each day. Gratitude helps shift our focus from our circumstances to something positive.
  • When things seem next to impossible, admit this to the Lord and ask Him for guidance. He cares and can handle any of our struggles.
  • In Scripture, Jesus gives us messages of joy in the following verses from John 15:9-11 "As the Father has loved Me, so have I loved you. Now remain in My love. If you keep my commands, you will remain in My love, just as I have kept my Father's commands and remain in His love. I have told you this so that My joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete."
  • Listening to uplifting music can bring joy. I often listen to Dappy T Keys YouTube Channel he offers simple, inspirational piano music. As I write this blog post, I'm listening to his channel. 😊
Let us pray together:

Dear Heavenly Father,
We are looking to seek joy when things in our lives are a struggle. We thank You for Your love and help us to remain in Your love and keep Your commands. We thank You that Your joy is in us, and our joy is complete in You.
In Jesus Name we pray,


With love,
