TODAY’S WORD…

May you always be joyful in your union with the Lord.

I say it again: rejoice!

.

– Philippians 4:4 (GNT)

REFLECTION…

.

Jesus is always near us…and this fills us with happiness.

Unhappiness is when we lose Him,

when we put a distance between ourselves and the Lord our God

through our egoism, our sins, and our lukewarm attitude to our faith.

.

The Lord always brings joy…never affliction.

We shall be full of joy if our Lord is present in our life,

unless we have lost Him;

unless we have allowed our sight to be clouded by tepidity

or by a lack of generosity, mercy and compassion.

.

To find Christ, and to remain in His company,

is to possess a deep happiness which is new every day!

.

.

.

QUOTE…

.

“Your hearts will rejoice, and no one will take your joy from you.”

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

My heart rejoices when I walk with You, when I talk with You. Lord, You are my Joy!
