The Secret to True Joy

A joyful woman exults on a winter's day

The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word. After he had provided purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven.—Hebrews 1:3 (NIV)

Know that God’s glory surrounds you. Remember that He created you to be joyful and fully alive. Joy doesn’t come from an easy life, but rather from trusting—and praising— God in every situation.

Today's Prayer:

Heavenly Father, guide me to make the most and the best of every day and every situation. Guide me to true joy!
