An inspiring and practical framework to about joy from Bob Goff
Disappointments are a fact of life. Setbacks will happen to us all at some point. It is easy to allow such events to steal our joy and distract us from our true purpose. But we don't have to fall into that trap. We can choose to keep our focus on Christ even in turmoil and be the kind of people who get busy moving in another direction.
In this five-session video study, bestselling author Bob Goff shares some of the stories from his life that have helped him understand what it truly means to be joyful in every situation. As he notes, the hard truth is that most of us live our lives consumed by worries and fears about things over which we have no control. We struggle to know how we should interact with family or friends. We fret about our finances and our faith. We question our college major and career choice. Add to this that we're following a God we can't see, for a lifetime we can't measure, to a heaven we can't comprehend, because of grace we didn't earn.
We're all trying to figure it out as we go. This leaves more offramps than onramps, more chances for confusion than certainty and more ambiguity than clarity. All of this vagueness plays right into the hands of darkness. The enemy doesn't seek to destroy us with an obvious all-out assault. No, he wants to distract us, keep us locked up in worries, and prevent us from experiencing those things that will give us true joy in life.
This is the goal of this study—to provide a roadmap to defeat discouragement and regain joy in life by becoming captivated by something better. Joy will provide practical steps to help participants make that journey.
