Joy Is Constant, Happiness Is Transitory



Happiness is transitory. It is dependent on the attainment of a desired goal, a cherished dream, a long sought after quest. After the effects of its achievement fade away, it is quickly gone, replaced by another illusory quest, another obsessive goal. Thus happiness is not lasting. After the initial euphoria has died down, it is replaced by a holy discontent, an empty feeling in one's soul. Not so with joy. It is the indescribable feeling etched in one's heart and soul brought about by the certitude of God's presence in one's life. It is the feeling of security and peace that nothing will happen to a person that is not ordained by God as good. It is the inner feeling of knowing in no uncertain terms that one's final goal is union with God in His heavenly abode. Joy is never dependent on outside circumstances but on the inner feeling of oneness with God. It is the intimate relationship with God who is no longer perceived as transcendent and beyond reach by our knowledge and senses but as immanent because He is actually living inside us. Joy is knowing that we are the temple of the Holy Spirit and that we are being transformed by Him from glory to glory until we reach the whole measure of the fullness of Jesus Christ. Joy is knowing that at the end of our temporary pilgrimage on earth, we shall meet our Lord who will wipe all tears in our eyes as He beckons us to live with Him in His heavenly abode forevermore. THAT IS INDESCRIBABLE JOY.

It's Still A Wonderful World For Abbey

I earnestly ask all my friends and readers to please pray for the spiritual healing of both Kevin and Abbey. These are beautiful angels both suffering from leukemia or cancer of the blood. Kevin is the grandson of my Christian friend Krystyna of Staying Young and Healthy and Abby is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Colbert of Colbert Family - A.L.L. In His Hands. There is power in corporate prayers and the prayers of the righteous are powerful and effective. Thank you all very much and God bless us all.
