Are you having a hard time finding joy in your life? I think we all struggle with this sometimes. Our lack of joy can come from a myriad of places, but one thing think is important to catch is where we are looking to find our happiness. What are you focussing on to try and make you happy? The truth is that nobody can make you happy—not your spouse, not your friends, not your job, and not your parents. Having people in your life can bring joy, but that alone is not sustaining. You have to be in charge of your own happiness by finding your source of life in your relationship with Jesus. He is the giver of all good things. Check out this week’s Flashback Friday for more:
So today let’s put away our selfishness and set our focus on giving to the people we love around us. How can you give up living for pleasure and start living for joy? I promise that even if the trade of pleasure for joy can sometimes be challenging, you’ll find life at the end of the exchange. I want to challenge you to do one thing today to love someone without selfish ambition, and I bet you’ll be blessed in the process!
