Can there be true joy in this world? Should it just be "Joy to the world" like the song says?
It is my opinion that God has joy in this world. He created it to praise Him and glorify Him. While there will be pain, suffering, and sadness - the joy of the Lord is our strength to get us through it.
Joy in the world?
Joy to the world?
Joy of the Lord.
The source is the Lord and it will be found where ever we are. Joy comes from deep within, knowing that we have a loving, forgiving God on our side.
While joy isn't always around us on the outside, it can always be found on the inside - where the Lord resides.
