JOY AND HAPPINESS
“Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.”
Psalms 16:11 KJV
If you want to have joy and happiness flood your heart and life, spend time with Jesus. I dearly love my family and I have a lot of friends who I love but there are no words to describe the joy and happiness that fills my heart when I spend time with Jesus. What a privilege is ours to fellowship with Jesus.
Pastor Ira F. Stanphill wrote one of my favorite hymns “Happiness Is The Lord”. These words are so true. “Happiness is to know the Savior, Living a life within His favor, Having a change in my behavior--Happiness is the Lord,” Are we living a life within His favor? Is He pleased with the things we do?
Heavenly Father, please help us to do things and say things that make You happy. I pray for everyone who is discouraged, lonely, and heartbroken and who feels like nobody cares. Please reassure them of Your unconditional love for them. Thank You for loving us. In Jesus’ Name, I pray. Amen.
