All the days of the oppressed are wretched, but the cheerful heart has a continual feast. ~ Proverbs 15:15
Joy cannot be stolen, but you can choose to give it away.
Each day, we get to choose how we respond and live in God's amazing creation. We can decide to live "afflicted" or live "effective".
You can't control the world or the bad stuff happening around you. But you can control how you respond to difficulty.
You are in charge of your attitude. Joy is a decision - no matter the circumstance.
