Am I content? Am I raptured by God's love? Am I happy with where I am in God? Can I find blissful moments in the midst of rough, cold, and hard times?
These are things I am pondering. I believe TRUE JOY is being complete in HIM.
John 15:5, 11
VS 5 "I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.
VS 11 "These things I have spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full."
True JOY is finding that complete happiness and contentment in Jesus. Taking daily time to be raptured in His presence, and being blissfully swept away in His sweet Words.
