When I am feeling troubled or down, I do not feel like rejoicing. However, the Bible says that the Joy of the Lord is my strength. How does that work? It is not to pretend or be fake, but to find joy in being a Christian, knowing that our life is under God’s protective eye. Not only that, but God helps us find joy. Here are 10 Scriptures For Joy:
