You can find joy in every situation. I'm writing this while going through a difficult family time with a family member being really poorly and likely to die soon. So, I'm not saying that joy is the same as happiness.
I discovered a few years ago that joy is not the same as happiness. That is why the topic of joy features in my upcoming book about the complexity faced by modern-day disciples, and therefore forms part of the collection of artwork to accompany it.
Joy, as you may well know, is part of the Fruit of the Spirit. This indicates, that it's a spiritual gift. I believe that we find joy in Jesus, primarily.
When I painted this I had just found out that a family member's illness had become terminal. In fact, it had been terminal for a while, but we were faced with her passing in a more intense way. I'm very close to this particular family member and it's the first family member to get close to death (I've not experienced a family bereavement yet). I painted during a time of intense sadness, but I managed to paint a joyful painting because I was thinking of her life and all that she means to me. I used her favourite colours and bold shapes representing her boldness and inner strength. I painted with love and joy in my heart, despite the deep pain and sadness of her being so poorly and so near to the end of her life.
The joy that comes from God is where we have inner joy, contentment, and peace no matter what is going on around us.
Here are some Bible verses about joy:
"Count it all joy, my brothers, when you encounter various trials" (James 2:1 NHEB)
"Now may the God of all hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope, in the power of the Holy Spirit." (Romans 15:13 NHEB)
"But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Against such things, there is no law. (Galatians 5:22-23 NHEB)
