Our Holy God is Full of Joy

Most people don’t associate “God” with joy and pleasure. But the Bible describes God as being full of joy and having time with Him can be joy-giving for us.

You Are Warmly Welcomed By God

On days when I know I’ve really messed up, I used to hesitate about coming to God. He is holy, I am not.

Learning to Interact with God

In some ways it’s so easy to talk with God. Just direct your mind and words to the One who is always with you. It’s easy.

  1. Simply acknowledge that He is with you. Something like, “Thank you, Jesus, that you are with me right now.”
  2. Picture yourself walking in the door to the most loving, joyful, beautiful, healing, wonderful place and Person you can imagine. Picture God smiling at you with the biggest smile you’ve ever seen.
  3. Read some of God’s words in the Bible, especially verses about His love, holiness, goodness, joy, etc.
  4. Thank Him that those words are true. Receive them in your soul.
