    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?

Love this. So many people say "well I know God above all else wants me to be happy... Do what makes you happy" but the truth of the matter is LIFE IS TOO SHORT to do all the things that make you in the moment feel good. God is about holiness. Bringing things together for our good. Never says just so that we can feel good. Joy is a choice happiness... An emotion!
