Though you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy, for you are receiving the goal of your faith, the salvation of your souls.
There is no doubt now, God helped me pick out these verses for the week! :o) What a beautiful passage! I believe this describes the source of all joy. Many things draw me closer to God if I allow them to do so, and joy is in that journey. Joy is knowing God, and knowing He loves me. Joy is having faith we will live with Him forever.
Father God, you are the source of all joy, drawing me in and holding me close. I am safe and at peace knowing you are looking over me. Thank you for all of the ways you remind me each day. Amen
