Joy.

Joy is not something that comes from changing an outward circumstance, it is something that happens within. A choice. An agreement with Christ in me. The Holy Spirit at work within me, the "hope of glory" in me, and in all believers, who works joy in us, despite all outward circumstances. Happiness may happen when nice things happen... but true joy is an internal happening, based solely on what Jesus is doing in us and through us.
