“Living the Joy-filled life (No matter the circumstances)”
Our God is a “God of exceeding joy.” Yet, everyone struggles with experiencing joy that the Bible has promised us. Many of us, even as Christians, endure life rather than enjoy life. Yet God wants to bring joy into our lives. Life’s circumstances may ‘steal’ our joy but Jesus Christ wants to enable us to recover our joy so we may live in our heritance as a “joy-filled” Christian.
This message series, “Living a Joy-filled life (No matter the circumstances)” will help us experience joy in the midst of life’s challenging circumstances. It will help us grow in the understanding of our God is a “God of exceeding joy.”
The message series titles (homilies) at our Advent weekend masses are:
Philippians is the happiest book of the Bible. Happiness is not an accident-it’s a choice. You were meant to live a life free from worry, shame and resentment, but it won’t happen by chance. In this four part series, learn how you can choose to be joyful regardless of what comes your way.
