Joy is one of the more elusive emotions to consistently experience. This is true if you follow Jesus and if you don’t. Followers may be uncomfortable hearing this. But, ask yourself, “Do I always experience the emotional joy Jesus promised?” If honest, none of us do? As followers, we have the capacity to experience a joy unlike those who do not follow Jesus. Yet, that joy does not surface every moment of every day for days, weeks, or months at a time.
