10 Quotes About God & Joy to Encourage Your Pastoral Life

Happiness depends on things going right in our lives. The root word for happiness is “hap” which means a chance, lucky, or accidental occurrence. Joy is different. It can and should at times involve pleasant feelings, but there’s more. Joy arises from within. It is internal not external. Joy is not dependent on circumstances. You can have joy despite your circumstances.
