31 Days of Joy: What Is Joy?


This is the definition of joy that I have written:

Joy is a deep, abiding happiness and contentment.  It is a delight in the Lord that cannot be taken away.  It’s a cheerfulness that is not dependent on one’s circumstances, but is instead the result of one’s relationship with God.  This joy can endure through the hardest of trials, the deepest of wounds, and the most painful of sorrows. 

How would you define joy?
