Sometimes in the middle of life’s ups and downs it’s hard to find joy. Whether you are facing a job change, health issues, strained relationships, or any other problem it’s hard to be joyful.
When I look at social media I see the frustration, fear, and concern people are experiencing. There is definitely no joy to be found there.
However, James reminds us to count it all joy when we face hardships. (see James 1:2) Notice he said when hardships happen, not if they happen.
July is a great month to turn our focus to JOY. Let’s use this month’s scripture plan to help us find encouragement and joy in all of our circumstances. I know from personal experience that it is possible to have joy even in difficult times.
