John 15:11 (NASB) "These things I have spoken to you so that My joy may be in you, and that your joy may be made full."It had been a long day of work, I was exhausted and covered with dirt and grime but when I saw them, I was filled with joy! After working an exhausting 12 hour day, I decided to meet my wife and grandson, boy was that a good decision! Today's verse speaks about joy, God's Joy and how it may be in us and may be made full. My spirits were a little down from working so hard, it had been a difficult day. Things didn't go as planned making the day harder than it needed to be. I was physically hurt along the way and my heart was heavy, and that's when I saw them. Something deep within my heart smiled, for here was my wonderful wife and our little grandson. He immediately wanted to sit on my lap and gave me a big hug. The feeling of joy and love was overwhelming. When we come to Christ and sit with God for a while, we can find the joy in our life and that joy can be full. When was the last time you sat with God and let Him love you, it can change your day?! peace, tom
