Joy in God's Presence
Waking Up The SunPart 1 · February 7, 2016 · Pastor Jerry Gillis
The bleak of winter can sometimes be a difficult time to find joy. No life on the trees, bitter cold, and less daylight. But joy does not escape us, even if we can’t find it in our surroundings or our circumstances. In fact, true joy – real, lasting joy – goes beyond all that.
- What are some of the usual go-to sources for us to try and find joy? Is what they offer true, lasting joy or is it more like temporary happiness? How do you know?
- What does it mean to find joy in Gods presence? What does that look like for you in your life today? What difference does it have on people around you?
- If you feel restless, you can find rest in Gods presence. But what does that look like in everyday life? How can you actively rest in Gods presence and discover the joy that comes from that?
Lord Almighty, blessed is the one who trusts in you. (Psalm 84:12)
