True Joy is an intrinsic quality birthed by Love. It is a fruit of the spirit and is the precursor of Peace. It is evidenced by a confident assurance that is only found in God. It is the axis on which genuine happiness turns. In fact, genuine happiness is the by-product of True Joy. It is not contingent upon outward circumstances. It increases and gets stronger through adversity, because a Spirit of Joy is fueled by gratitude and is NEVER governed by loss. That is why Joy is the Supernatural remedy for any great tragedy.
