Christian Joy

 
 

Christian Joy
By Tom D Blakely
~

Happiness is just a feeling
That will quickly pass.
It depends on things that happen
Things that cannot last.

Christian joy is something deeper
Rooted in our faith.
It depends on the unchanging
Word of God in Christ.

Many words have lost their meaning
In our world today.
But the Word of God will never
Yield to what men say.

Joy is given by the Spirit
In it there is power.
Martyred saints rejoiced in Jesus
In their darkest hour.

Do not trust in moods and feelings
Based on things that pass.
Christian joy is Spirit given
Fruit of growing faith.

“But the fruit of the Spirit is: love, joy…”
[Galatians 5:22]
