Joy is not a choice, but a result of our choices. (Janine Lansing, author)

Most faces in the crowds today don’t seem to show much joy. Instead, you’ll likely see concern, worry, even fear. It’s not just life’s circumstances which are often difficult; quite often the dour expressions are the result of poor choices in health, family, or financial issues. You can’t just choose joy, you have to make choices all along the way that will allow you to experience joy.  

Joyful is the person who finds wisdom, the one who gains understanding. The life of the godly is full of light and joy (Proverbs 3:13; 13:9).
