Good morning to you.

It is always a delight to see people experiencing and displaying joy.

But sometimes life becomes so difficult that it’s hard to find joy. These feelings can lead to despair; to think our lives have no meaning. It is even tempting to consider this life as something we just have to get through until we get to spend eternity with Jesus. But Jesus made it clear that God intended for us to do more than just exist.

Matthew records Jesus teaching us not to spend our lives focused on things of lesser concern, like food and clothing. Instead, Jesus teaches us to focus on God first and to live life His way. (Matthew 6:25-34) When we seek God first, everything else falls into the right order. That is the first step to finding joy.

Our hope is in God. Our faith is in God. Our joy comes from God.

Have a blessed day.

Mike and Daphne
