A lot of times joy is defined as extreme happiness. But happiness and joy are very different things. Happiness is a momentary, pleasurable emotion that we get when things are going our way. Joy is deeper than circumstances. Joy attaches to a state of being and isn’t dependent on circumstances. Happiness goes up or down depending on favorable or unfavorable circumstances. Joy endures through all circumstances and doesn’t increase or decrease based on circumstances. Download Advent Devotions 2023
Are you or someone you know feeling “blue” this year?
You are invited to join us for a Blue Christmas service.
We recognize that Christmas is not a season of joy for everyone. In this service, we pray that every person experiences the hope and comfort in knowing they are not alone.
