Thought for the day
Happiness in believing is possibly out of fashion and even out of sync with the times. And yet, engagement with the Good News should surely lead to a profound happiness, even exuberance. Just because we don’t feel it all the time doesn’t mean it isn’t real! The joy of the Gospel is part of who we are.
God As we place our trust in you,
as we are loved by you and love you in return, unlock our hearts that we may know true and lasting joy in believing.
