About believing with confidence, “with a sense of longing and eager expectancy” in the midst of a world going mad.

What is the joy of your Christmas this year?
What extreme joy and exhilaration we will have – when we physically unite together in the heavens with Jesus.
I’ve got that joy. Do “you greatly rejoice”, and “delight with inexpressible and glorious joy”? You can. But “you must be born again” (Jesus said).
Heaven for us – starts when we die. Heaven is joy and goodness everywhere – always – where only the goodness of God surrounds us.
We pray because God cares, and He hears what we say. The beginning of prayer is the purifying of our spirit. All that self-talk we all engage our minds in throughout the day? “Talk it” to God. If I take my eyes off Jesus… I become unbalanced in my soul. I take refuge in God… There is no better way to deal with life. The number to call for repair in all areas is: P-R-A-Y-E-R

When this life is over and we’ve lived it all for self we’ll have nothing in eternity but self and self that’s all
THIS is it! This is my life. God gave it to me. Every moment. I can do with it whatever I choose. Not every moment is stellar, but… this moment is part of it all. Put it all together, and it makes up — my life. There’s no sense in waiting for something else to come along! What else!? This is it! THIS is my life.
Heaven is a joyful place. That is hard for me to imagine… Everywhere I look around me, I see so many problems, issues and unresolved conflicts. But in heaven, they won’t exist anymore. There will only be joy because my sins have been paid for by the blood of Jesus Christ. One of the main things that describes being in heaven is JOY.
