JOY OR HAPPINESS?

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self control.  Against such thing there is no law.  Galatians 5:22-23


Whats the difference between joy and happiness?  I am a happy person, but not always filled with joy.  Happiness for me personally is feeling at peace with my life, contentment, patience for God's plan, fulfillment, and love for the people in my life.  Joy is an exhuberant feeling of knowing I am a child of God and loved and protected like no other.  He guards my life, my heart and my mind.  This is the kind of joy that makes me strong.  Anything is possible if I trust in God.  This has served we so well over the years, especially this year.
