“These things I have spoken to you, that My joy may remain in you, and that your joy may be full.”
You haven’t quite grasped this concept yet, but you are just finally beginning to understand it a little better. Joy is not happiness. They are not the same thing and you can have one without having the other. Happiness, to this world, has to do with your world view and contentment. However, joy is completely different. Joy stems from your inner-most being… the essence of who you are in Me. Joy is found in Me and in doing My will and obeying Me. It wells up from your soul, My joy was doing My father’s will while I was in the world. I found joy in giving My life because that is what pleased Father and pleasing Him caused My joy to be complete and full. This is the same for you. Seek Me, abide in Me and you will bless others by your words and actions and not even realize that you are making a difference to them. It will become just who you are. Living in harmony with Me will cause My joy to remain in you and your joy in pleasing Me will fulfill you and overwhelm you like nothing else can.
