JOY IN LIVING

Faith without joy is impossible.  If you are not happier because of your faith then what’s the purpose of living the spiritual life?  Faith gives us optimism and hope.  It gives a us a reason for being and living.  It gives us joy unspeakable and full of glory.  Faith in God should bring a deep feeling of security and happiness, no matter what’s going on around us.  Every day is a new day, a new opportunity to serve God… that’s why we are here right?  We are like pebbles being throw into a pool of still water, outgoing and ever reaching in ever widening circles.  It is impossible to put our trust in God and ever be disappointed….  Though now you do not see Him, yet believing, you rejoice with joy inexpressible and full of glory…. 1 Peter 1:8  

PRAYER 4 TODAY

Dear Lord, help me to understand that a Christian life devoid of joy is unbiblical and really not worth having.  How can I not have joy knowing You love me, are with me, and promise to help and bless me forever?

THOUGHT 4 TODAY

Is the Joy of the Lord really your strength?
