On joy and peace from God
I am Timothy, and this is a letter to those who serve Him.
I am His Apostle.
This letter has been written in His Spirit.
Not any word am I writing has not come from Him. Every word written is the Word of God.
This is a letter written with my hands, in His Spirit.
Where does Joy come from?
What gives us that lilt in our hearts when we experience something joyous?
Something from Him.
It is God who sends us our emotions.
It is God who grants us the gift of being in Him.
It is God who elates with joy and sends us a feeling to share with Him in those moments.
It is God who is with us in every way when we are with joy.
So must it be with Peace from Him too.
I have seen a difference between rest and peace.
It is God who grants us Peace from Him.
A moment in which our souls are restored to a state of calmness.
Joy and Peace are from Him.
It is God we must thank when we experience these two states of emotion.
It is God who sends them to us.
“I am with you, always.
When do you feel truly calm?
When do you feel truly happy?
It is when I am with you.
It is when I am for you.
It is when I have given to you gifts from Heaven,
just for you and your friends and family around you.
With the birth of a child,
with their christening,
with their first holy communion,
with their confirmation,
with their graduation,
with their marriage,
with your first grand child,
and many more after that.
I am with you, always.”
The Lord God gives to us all that we receive from His Servants.
The Lord God sends His gifts from Heaven for us to experience Life.
This is the Word of God.
Thanks be to God.
