“I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete.”
Jesus prepares his disciples for the future. He will physically leave, but lets the disciples know he will be with them always. This is the source of joy. Jesus made God accessible to us. And the Holy Spirit is the presence of God in us, leading us always. This is where I should turn, always, when things seem bleak. When I am anxious, or angry, the very Spirit of God is willing to help me out!
Holy Father, Thank-you. You are here for me, always. It is hard for me to accept sometimes. I tend to feel unworthy when I pray for help for myself. You are here for me, and I am grateful. Amen
