Have you ever noticed someone going through a difficult time in their life, yet they still managed to have a smile on their face? Before you credit their own strength, consider their source of power. God has promised “fullness of joy” for any who dwell in His presence. No matter how difficult your life may be, walking in the presence of God gives genuine peace (Phil. 4:7), and that is something to smile about!
“Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand are pleasures for evermore.” – Psalms 16:11
