I use my Power of Zeal to be joyful.
Happiness is my response to the world around me. People, places, events, opportunities – these things and many more are reasons for me to choose to be happy. And that’s a good thing!
Yet, Joy is beyond happiness. Such a small word describing such a warm and wonderful experience. Joy is an essential expression of What I AM – Zeal. Zeal is a spiritual Power that remains unaffected by the corporeal realm. It is unchangeable.
Zeal is one of my 12 spiritual qualities defining my Christ Identity. Using Zeal, I choose joy to see myself through life’s challenging moments. I feel my joy the most when I share it with others.
When I connect with the eternal substance of Zeal and Strength, I am able to persevere in the face external events or situations.
