It irks me whenever I hear someone say, “Happy Wife, Happy Life”. The reason is because happiness is transient. Happiness is based on your circumstance in the moment. It’s very difficult to sustain.
When my wife and I just married, we made it a point to recognize it was not each other’s responsibility to make each other happy but rather, help each other find joy.
We learned that true joy and satisfaction can only come from God. Joy is what you have at all times regardless of your circumstance. You can have joy in times of peace as well as in times of turmoil.
This is why I rather say, “Joyful wife, joyful life.”
Read and meditate on Romans 15:13. What does this verse say to you?
What are you doing now to find joy?
Meditate / Make It Real:
How would finding true joy change your life? What’s your first step?
