Joy does not come from things of the world.
There is an undercurrent of joy which naturally runs through you as a Son/Daughter of God. This joy is present all the time, regardless of whether you recognize or feel it. When you move through the world, this joy becomes "flavored" by the unique experiences you have and by the unique expressions of God you meet. This joy is even present when you have "negative" experiences.
When you recognize that this world is not real and that you no longer need to apply judgment to your experiences or the people you meet, they no longer appear as "negative" to you, just joy flavored in a different way.
These posts are similar to the over 2400 contained on The Divine Speaks website (www.thedivinespeaks.com) where God gives YOU the one that you need to hear at that time. Lawrence is the author of several books on emotional and spiritual healing, including the latest "The Divine Speaks (Volume 1): Sayings About Life, Love, and God." which can be purchased on Amazon (link below). Now the statements you have enjoyed electronically are presented in this new book in a divinely guided order which takes the reader on a powerful journey of remembrance, bringing about great healing and personal growth. http://a.co/51Urbqf
