• Ever notice when you have lost something, you always find it in the last place you look? Sometimes we experience this when we look for joy. During all situations, both good and bad, we are to rejoice. The joy of a Christian is not based on agreeable circumstances, instead it is based on their relationship with God.Christians will face trouble in the world but should rejoice in the trials they face because they know God is using those situations to improve their character. Jesus Christ knew the joy of God on many occasions. He knew when His Father was pleased and spent time with Him to celebrate the joy. Spend time on a daily basis with your Heavenly Father, and experience joy.
