joy is built

Joy is not happiness... it's better.

Joy doesn't require getting what you want or having your say.

Joy isn't an absence of difficulty, pain or rejection.

Joy is not circumstantial.

Joy is built on unseen values like hope and tangible actions like faithfulness as a bedrock.

For anyone out there who is worn down by "loved ones" who do unloving things...

by "friends" who slide in and out of your life like strangers...

by "adults" who act childish and kids who insist they're grown up...

I'm with you. I'm praying for you (let me know how).

Let's find joy together. I'm finding it in fixing my eyes on Jesus, who...
"...for the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God." (Hebrews 12:2)
