Lord, I am coming to you because I have been feeling unhappy lately. Sometimes, I do not even know why I am feeling this way, something just seems to be missing from my life. I know that you want us to live an abundant life filled with joy and I want that for myself. Help remind me that joy is much deeper than happiness because it is not contingent upon circumstances and joy is always available through you. Thank You for always giving me a reason to smile. Help me remember that I always have a reason to be joyful because my heart is found in You. In Jesus name, Amen.
