The difference between fun and joy


Recommended Posts

I have been thinking about the difference between fun and joy. I know I can feel joy having fun but I was wondering what others thoughts were on the subject. I know joy is a fruitage of Jehovah's spirit. I had a bizarre controlling childhood. My father kept my toys in his closet. I couild never skip about like a child. I am at a point in my life where I am trying to have some fun. I have gotten coloring books and crayons and colored pencils and sketch book. I have these voices (self talk) that say "ok that is enough fun for you".. Anyone else struggle with having fun and feeling joy?
