How Can I Find Joy When My Life Is So Difficult?

JoyThe New Creature experiences a joy and rejoicing that the natural mind cannot understand or appreciate. In moments of great trial, when the natural man faints under the weight of human hardship, God’s children call to mind His promises.

Isaiah 26:3 (NKJV) says, “You will keep him in perfect peace, Whose mind is stayed on You, Because he trusts in You.”

Philippians 4:7 (NAS) says that, “… the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, shall guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”

In the severest of trials, we can be encouraged by God’s promises provide us with a great peace that surpasses all human comprehension.

When our faith grasps God’s promise and holds it, the realization of joy in the Lord is sure to follow. The more firmly our faith lays hold upon God’s promises, the more we will realize its fulfilment, and the more fully will joy abound; for in the presence of the Lord is fullness of joy, no matter what may be the conditions and circumstances.

    Thank You Brother Peter,
    I enjoyed listening to your discourse of those many scriptures.
    Thanks for the reminder that despite difficulty we can find joy.
    Life has been difficult within JW’s & upon exiting.
    They will not leave me alone. It is a pain that runs very deep
    to the core the many things they’ve done.
    Your discourse reminded me that trials help our Character to develop
    & that thought makes my experience beneficial..

  • Joy is something I have little of work does not give me joy, Sex gives a little joy, I do not enjoy church or the kingdom hall, Music gives me joy, my 9 year old girl had to show what love is, Christ also shows me love. but do I love him back the way I should, I do not know but three people that like me,. My nine year old loves me. My own Father hates me. many times I feel the same way about him, I send my 9 year old to there house but I do not go to my dads house,. why is JW.ORG getting these messages., The bible is easy for me to understand why has my life been such a wreck,. when I do good my mind doctor wants to change meds when I am doing bad he wants to keep me on them. like they want me in hospital or die slowly,. Now by my law my wife and I are apart I will not have sex while married to her,.
