Joy vs Happiness
You see, joy is something that God gives you on the inside. It wells up inside of you and splashes on everything and everyone around you and can give you a positive and hopeful outlook.
But happiness is fickle. It is based on external things and people and no matter how hard you try you cannot control things and people around you all the time. That is why happiness gives you a more negative outlook on life and on others around you.
Let us therefore always aim for and pray for God to give us more of His Joy. He can help us feel Joy even in the midst of great pain and sorrow. Let's grow and let the "Joy of the Lord be our strength".
