Dr. Peppers shares here the secret to finding true joy in spite of all that is happening around us. We will all experience pain and suffering in our lifetime, but even in the midst of these, there is a true difference between happiness and joy. Our happiness may indeed be dependent upon our circumstances. For instance, no one feels happy when dealing with the death of a loved one, or going through a severe illness. But even in the midst of these times, we can have the joy of the Lord, because He is there to comfort and shelter us, and we can even choose to praise God in the midst of our trials. It doesn’t change things, but it does change us! Whatever you are going through today my friend, stop and praise God in spite of your trials, and thank Him for His strength, which is your true source of joy.
