Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. - James 1:2-3
Choosing joy is not always easy, especially when our circumstances leave us feeling anything but joyful. However, the Bible is full of commands about choosing to be joyful in the Lord in every situation. He loves us and is always with us and wants us to choose joy!
