Many times when someone sees a Christian cheerleader in high school, they think of someone who is joyful and fun to be around. This is because they find their true joy in others, and in the Lord. Many people struggle with finding where true joy comes from.

 

High schoolers believe it is fun to get drunk or high. I get told quite often that I am missing out on so much when I do not participate in these activities. People say they are at their happiest when they do all of these things to themselves. Although they find joy in those things, I find joy in my friends, family, and most importantly the Lord.

 

It may seem very unreal to be able to find joy in these things, but it is very possible. When people are finding joy in substance things it is only temporary lasting them a little amount of time. On the other hand, finding joy within the Lord is everlasting.

 

“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope,” Romans 15:13.

 

People think God will not fulfill them with what they need or want. When we do not physically see or feel the joy that we want, we think that God is not trying to help us. In time God will do with us what he wants, and feels is right in our lives.

 

Many people would say it is impossible to find joy in something that can not be seen. Even though people can not see God, it does not mean he is not alive and with them at all times.

 

Seeing is not believing, believing is seeing. This means seeing the little things that God is constantly doing things for us. When we wake up with a warm home, and clean running water it is a gift that God has given us. I find joy in the promises found within the bible. We have to believe that God will keep his promises, and never fail us.

 

Joy does not come from getting drunk, or high if people get joy from these things it is only temporary. That is why I put my joy in the only thing that’s everlasting, my love for Jesus.
