Scripture(s): Philippians 4:4-9 (NIV)
If you’re happy and you know it life is good…If you’re happy and you know it life is good… What if life takes a turn for the worse, times get tough? Is our happiness is contingent on whatever life throws our way — that our happiness is a thermometer of life’s temperatures — or do we have anything to say in the matter? The truth is we can find happiness and peace in the midst of chaos, contentment despite limitations, and joy even in our darkest, most tragic times. When it’s all said and done, it comes down to Perspective.
In this last week of the Perspective Series, we will face the topic that turns our lives upside down the most, worry. So many of us worry, fret, lose sleep, don’t eat, eat too much and bring massive amounts of stress into our lives all for the sake of worrying. What if we can see things differently and come to the realization that worry is a matter of perspective. We are strongly reminded that nothing, absolutely nothing can separate us from the love of Christ Jesus. We further recognize that in joy of the Lord we find strength.
In this week #4 of the Perspective series we will look at ourselves to find out if I’ve Got Joy, Joy Joy, Joy.
