God wants us to experience joy. We are commanded to be joyful always in all situations. The fact is that many of us struggle to find joy and when we find it there are so many things that rob us of joy. So how do we find and keep joy? The key to finding and keeping joy is found in gratitude. Joy is created and sustained by gratitude. Gratitude is about being thankful for what we have! Gratitude is joy over what we have, not what we don’t have or lack. The theft of joy is a lack of gratitude and the lack of gratitude comes from a deficit or scarcity mindset. We don’t believe or experience that what God has given us is enough and thus our absence of joy. Gratitude declares that God is enough and gives more than enough.
