We bundle it, jump for it, and pair it with pride. But do we truly understand what joy is? Come with us as we look at the definitions of joy. Can you be happy without being joyful? How does joy fit into our lives when we are going through challenges, heartache or pain? God’s Word gives us clear guidelines for claiming this promise that is also a command from Him. In this lesson series, we will start by understanding the source of true joy; ABUNDANT JOY.
