The evidence we experience every day reveals that joy and happiness are not enjoyed by everyone. Mirth and other expressions, such as laughing at an uncouth joke, are just fleeting moments of joy and do not produce the peace of soul and heart. But, the christian, by knowing God, has the opportunity to receive and express joy in the promises of God's word. Salvation and eternal life create optimism of better things producing good feelings in the life.
Besides spiritual gifts, God gives the physical things that we enjoy day-by-day. There is joy in the beauty of a flower, in new birth, the growth of a tree or plant, money, food, and many other things.
Some days we feel like laughing and even dancing, and there are times we cry and mourn, but through these times can there be an inward joy because of trust in God?
