Finding Eternal Good Humor

Genuine versus counterfeit.  Real versus fake.  Joy versus happiness.  Joy gives me calm assurance even though I go through the valley of the shadow of death.  Joy enables me to hold my peace when people say and do ugly things to me.  When we go through troubles, afflictions, persecution, danger, illness, and distress, when the enemy comes to steal, kill, and destroy, we can have genuine joy in our hearts.

Joy is permanent.  Once you have it, you never lose it.  It may be overshadowed by human frailties, but real joy lasts for eternity.
