Being human means seeing a lot of suffering, experiencing a great deal of pain and having all kinds of questions. This can easily lead to a stilted view of life and it’s exactly why you always need to start with God’s joy. This divine joy is not a way to cover-up real life, rather it has the power to re-form your life so you are compassionate instead of overwhelmed by suffering, hopeful instead of depressed, and purposeful instead of stymied by questions. So start with God’s joy and experience the miracle that can take place in your life.
