When are you completely joyful?
I have this one friend who instantly brings me joy when I’m around her. She makes me laugh all the time and she makes me understand the true value of friendship.
This friendship and instant joy I feel around her is beautiful, but I wonder if I feel this way every time I’m with Jesus? Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above. -James 1:7 (ESV)
Jesus the foundation for the blessings I receive. When I thank my Creator for every good gift, this is when I am freed from unhappiness or the lack of joy. Jesus deserves our praise! He’s given us everything we could ever desire: true friendship and love. Looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith -Hebrews 2:2 (ESV)
Jesus is the foundation for these gifts, but also for my faith. Yes, my life should express this joy for Him! He’s the One from whom I receive eternal salvation and eternal love. He’s my Savior! Of course my joy should be found in Him!
Jesus, let us learn to become joyful children because You are the Creator of joy! Of laughter! Of Friendship!
You deserve our praise!
Thank you Sweet Jesus.
Thank you for this joy.
