"You have made known to me the ways of life; You will make me full of gladness with your Presence."

What is the key to a life of gladness? Most people’s gladness is determined by their circumstances. Therefore their happiness gauges like a roller coaster ride.

I have learned what David and Peter and many others have learned from being in the Presence of God. There He teaches us the ways of life. If we can become more aware of His Presence than our circumstances we can become full of gladness.

This time of year can magnify circumstances of rejection and loneliness, financial strain, broken relationships, loss of loved ones, and health issues. May I encourage you to seek satisfaction from a Source that provides light in our darkened state? Hear the true message of Christmas: The Light of the world has come to guide us out of darkness into his Presence where His perfect love lifts us up above our circumstances, and we shall be filled with gladness! Be filled with the Presence of Jesus, the Savior of the world, today and everyday!
