The Lord’s Joy Comes with Ease

“If you keep my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commands and remain in his love. I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete. My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you.” – John 15:10-12 Today, I invite you to be a joyful person! God loves you so much, and so do I. Maybe you’ve encountered difficult trials lately, but God can restore your joy! God offers us absolute joy that is playful, full of laughter, fun, and fantastic.
