joy down in my heart
It's interesting how so many people go through life in search happiness, when it is right before their eyes. Our purpose on earth is to have joy. 2 Nephi 2:25 We find joy, when we find God and learn to follow His ways. Alma 12:24; Alma 34:32; Alma 42:4; Abraham 3:25-26 Of course it's not a one time event. Learning God's ways takes a lifetime of striving, repenting, and striving again. The confusion comes when we try to squeeze the philosophies of men and the ways of the world into God's mold; they just won't fit. 3 Nephi 12:3-12 All this striving is God's plan for us to become perfected. No, we won't make that goal in this life, but with the Grace of the Savior we can progress towards it. 3 Nephi 12:48 Part of this joy is sharing what we have with those who want to listen and are willing to accept. Doctrine and Covenants 138:53-56
