“But the fruit of the spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.”
“Be joyful always;”
It is definitely hard to be joyful in every circumstance. On our own, there is no way we could be. It is only through Christ Jesus that we can find joy during the difficult times. He can give us joy in the good stuff, joy in the bad stuff and joy in the small stuff!
“You have made known to me the path of life;
you will fill me with joy in your presence,
with eternal pleasures at your right hand.”
