Is Jesus truly our joy?
Are we looking in all the wrong places to find joy?
Have we learned that true contentment, peace and joy come from no other and from nowhere other than Jesus? Even after knowing this we still keep slipping back into old behaviour patterns, worldly thoughts and seeking joy in THINGS!

Pray these Scriptures,read them daily and you will see change if you open you heart and allow God to work within you,
