Happiness or Joy?

The definition of happy in Webster’s Dictionary: feeling pleasure and enjoyment because of your life, situation, etc.                               Happiness depends on what is happening around you, so if the situation changes it can be lost.

Joy according to Webster : a source or cause of great happiness : something or someone that gives joy to someone                      True joy is inward, a gift given to the Christian by God. Joy continues through all circumstances and does not depend on what is happening around you and it is permanent.

Psalms 16:11 Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.
