Galatians 5:22,23 lists the Fruits of God's Spirit. "On the other hand, the fruitage of the spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faith, mildness, self-control. Against such things there is no law."
Love this. So many people say "well I know God above all else wants me to be happy... Do what makes you happy" but the truth of the matter is LIFE IS TOO SHORT to do all the things that make you in the moment feel good. God is about holiness. Bringing things together for our good. Never says just so that we can feel good. Joy is a choice happiness... An emotion!
