Do you know what the difference is between “happiness” and “joy”? Happiness is generated by an external, worldly experience and is a feeling or emotion that comes and goes. Joy, on the other hand, is a state of being that satisfies our soul. Joy is internal. Joy is a choice.
If you stop and think about it, the main difference between happiness and joy is the source. While happiness comes from worldly things, joy comes from knowing Jesus. While happiness easily fades away, joy is an internal contentment that stays with us. We experience joy when we’re in the presence of a Holy God. No matter what circumstances surround you, His presence can be an incredible source of not just joy, but abundant joy! King David knew this so well. Our theme verse this month comes from Psalm 16:11:
“You reveal the path of life to me: in Your presence is abundant joy; at Your right hand are eternal pleasures.”
Do you know this joy? The joy of being in the presence of a Holy God? The theme of this month’s Box of Blessings is Joy in His Presence…and that makes this month’s Box a favorite for me! Wait till you see what’s in it…
I absolutely love it when I can include a Bible in our monthly Box, and this month we have the highly readable, exceptionally reliable text of the Christian Standard Bible in a portable trim size with easy- to-read 7.5-point type. I love that the words of Christ are in red. It also has footnotes, full color maps, and a “Where to Turn” section with answers to commonly asked questions. With its saddle brown leathertouch cover and magnetic flap, this would be an amazing gift for either a special man or woman in your life.
