Turning inward to Spirit, I find true joy that fills and lifts me.
Life can have up and down moments. Despite what or when they may happen, I can find joy at any moment. Joy provides me with appreciation for the up moments, faith to face the down moments, and peace during the times in between. True happiness comes from being in touch with my true nature—my Christ Essence. Gladness is always present within me. Like love, it is a natural part of who I am. Trusting and being in touch with God is the key to experiencing bliss. This inner joy then shines forth as peace no matter what is happening in my life or in the lives of those I love. Turning inward to Spirit, I find true joy that fills and lifts me.
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.—Romans 15:13
