Your Key to a Joyful Life

This comes from one of my favorite bloggers Marie at View From The Pews

God's Love is a Radical Love.

It is when we place our happiness in the hands of another that we are doomed to a life of inner unhappiness, in that it is beyond man's ability to provide the inner joy and peace that many seek. This inner peace and joy can only be found in Christ, and through the Holy Spirit our souls are illuminated to the fullness and meaningfulness of the essence of Divine Love which ignites the heart and sets itself aflame.

John 15: 9-12
Jesus said to his disciples:
“As the Father loves me, so I also love you.
Remain in my love.
If you keep my commandments,
you will remain in my love,

just as I have kept my Father’s commandments
and remain in his love.

“I have told you this so that
my joy might be in you

and your joy might be complete."

I love that, too, John Michael! Thank you for this post!

I have been wondering about you and that job... I hope all's well, but then, don't things always turn out well to those who believe? God be praised!

It is good to be here, dear brother!

Oh, yeah the job.

I found out a couple of weeks ago that someone else got it. It took them a long time to notify me. Thank you so much for your prayers. I can't tell you how much they are appreciated.

May God you richly bless you little one,

John Michael
