Challenge #8: Be: Joy-Filled

Happiness is fleeting.

It comes and goes.

Joy is a gift from God.

It comes from knowing and loving Him.

Take the Challenge:

Step 1:

Claim your joy by breaking free of dependence on possessions and purchases.

  • Give what you don’t need to those that are in need.
  • Don’t purchase to feel better; give to create change.

Step 2:

Tame your need for happiness provided by things.

  • Volunteer
  • Clear your schedule to spend time with family

Step 3:

Aim your life towards God’s work in the world.

You will find joy when you live into what God is calling you to do.

  • Help the poor, the widowed, the orphan, and the alien.
  • Pray with the sick and the shut-in.
  • Love your neighbor.
