Joy

My schedule is a bit messed up this week due to commitments away from home and my computer. Since I don’t have time to write much of a post, I’m going to share a plaque I keep on my office wall:

Joy

is not

the absence of

suffering,

but the presence of

God

Give that some thought as you deal with the trials and tribulations life throws at you in the coming week.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

If you abide in Me and My word abides in you, then you shall know the truth, and the truth shall set you free.

    Hi David, Yes, Joy is a Presence That lives within your Heart, by The Presence of Knowing Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. When you have The Lord within you, you can have nothing Less than Joy. Of course we All Fall Short of The Glory of God, as we are Humane, But for the most part it’s a sense, that lives within our Heart, when you Abide and Trust in The Lord, %100,As it is Written, Trust in the Lord, and do good; Dwell in the land, and feed on His Faithfulness.Psalm 37:3. May God Continue to Bless You and Your Family.
