Certainly, life can be difficult, even tragic. Perhaps you're in a situation right now that makes you wonder...What good could ever come of this? Yet even in the hardest circumstances, it is possible to be content...even joyful. How is that possible?
The Bible says Rejoice always...but how do you pull that off? How can you be content, thankful - and yes, joyful - in the less-than-joyful situations you're facing? Is this joy something that God seals up inside of you, and once you break it open, does it keep flowing and flowing? Or do you have to dip into it again and again?
What do people think of you...not the ones who know you really well, but people like...the woman who says hi when she walks her dog in your neighborhood? Or the guy you see at your favorite coffee spot? What impression do you give? More to the point...do people think of you as joyful?
When you became a Christian, did your money troubles go away...did your family conflicts immediately resolve...did life just get easy? Probably not. Difficulty doesn't go away because you're a Christian...in fact, it may grow even more intense. So how do you face hardship - even the gravest trouble, the deepest sorrows - and keep your joy?
