Happiness Versus Joy

I Chronicles 16:27 - Splendor and majesty are before him; strength and joy are in his place.

Habakkuk 3:17-19 - Though the fig tree should not blossom, nor fruit be on the vines, the produce of the olive fail and the fields yield no food, the flock be cut off from the food and there be no herd in the stalls, yet I will rejoice in the Lord; I will take joy in the God of my salvation. God, the Lord, is my strength; he makes my feet like the deer's; he makes me tread on my high places. To the choirmaster: with stringed instruments.

Dear God, I will trade You one day of happiness for a lifetime of joy. To have joy regardless of circumstances is a great thing. Not that being both joyous and happy is a bad thing. Thank You for the joy You bring. In Jesus' Name, Amen!
