  1. I'm one of those people who always have a positive look on life but it's only because of Yeshua

    I understand though, there's some people like that who pressure others to do that but I'm one of the good ones with that outlook

    I'll try to help but I'll also leave you alone if you want to be alone

    There's good people out there like that 💙

  3. It’s a fruit of the spirit. It’s in us if we have the Holy Ghost. We receive joy as we pray in the Holy Spirit building ourselves up in our most holy faith. Happiness depends on circumstances

  4. Thank you so much Pastor Furtick. I am struggling with grief from the loss of my aunt. It helps to focus on the fact that she lived a life that pleased God and had right relationship with Jesus. For that joy that was set before me, I’ll endure the tears of missing her. It doesn’t feel good but her purpose was greater. Now I can perpetuate the name of Jesus because she taught me all about him. Thank you! I needed that word!
