I (Jesus) say to you, whatever you ask of the Father in my name, He will give it to you. Until now you have asked nothing in my name. Ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be full. (John 16:23b-24) Why is it that we are so scared to make our requests known to the Father? Why do you think we hold back so often?

Romans 15:13 8x10 print

Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost. Romans 15:13 KJV

The life of the godly is full of light and joy. Proverbs 13:9. facebook.com/jesusisalifestyle

Our discouragement always comes from chasing something. We may chase accomplishments, or peace, or the dream life we’ve always wanted, but the thing is, in this life we’ll never catch what we’re chasing. Our souls were created for more than the things we chase after.

O Love that wilt not let me go, I rest my weary soul in thee; I give thee back the life I owe, That in thine ocean depths its flow May richer, fuller be. O light that followest all my way, I yield my flickering torch to thee; My heart restores its borrowed ray, That in thy sunshine’s blaze its day May brighter, fairer be. O Joy that seekest me through pain, I cannot close my heart to thee; I trace the rainbow through the rain, And feel the promise is not vain, That morn shall tearless be.
