Maybe you’re in a place in life where you find it’s difficult to experience joy. It doesn’t make you a bad student pastor—it makes you a person. It’s for us to have moments of joylessness, otherwise the Scriptures wouldn’t speak so frequently: urging us to have joy, and reminding us that it is there for us. If you are struggling with joy, maybe the first step for you is to just admit that fact and recognize that it is there for you. Even if you can’t see it in the moment, recognize that as a believer in Jesus it’s there for you.
