Nehemiah 8:10 ” The joy of the Lord is your strength.”

One of the greatest characteristics of a Christian is the inward joy that doesn’t depend upon the circumstances we may find ourselves facing. Whereas happiness is the agreeable result of what happens to us, joy springs from a much deeper place inside of us…a place that may confound the world as they look at our circumstances and wonder how we can find any joy within it. This rejoicing in the midst of suffering may confuse the world, but to the Believer, it’s the bedrock of our faith. For it’s when we take our eyes off our circumstances and onto the Lord we can truly rejoice in His salvation & blessing… all the while acknowledging our dependance on Him as our ever present source of strength.
