Isn't "JOY ALWAYS" something you desire? 1 Thessalonians 5:16 tells us we should "Always be joyful". What's holding so many of us back from feeling joy and peace? Could it be you are trying to please others and live up to their expectations for you?
we need to turn to god alone to learn who we are and how we are to live.
