We all all hope for good health for us and our family. We hope for a positive outcome when we get test at the hospital. Hope is essential to our well-being as we need to be optimistic about the future. We need to harness hope in times of trials and tribulations that things will improve for us. How do you give someone hope? You can help them, stay connected, accept them and help them find something that completes them and makes them feel good about themselves. We put our hope in God as he is our security. God is the anchor for our souls.
Going on a trip with a friend or your family is a great joy. Being healthy and in a good frame of mind is a great joy indeed. Buying a first home brings joy as you have worked very hard in order to have a home of your own. Eating a piece of your favorite dessert alters your mind and body in positive ways. Dark chocolate and milk chocolate bring joy to adults and children. Joy is a feeling of great pleasure and happiness. I like to relax in a hammock and read a book on a nice and sunny day and sway back and forth in the gentle breeze. We feel joy when we are at our favorite sporting event. The joy of the Lord is your strength.
All of us want peace and harmony on our lives. We want to be free of conflicts and the fear of violence from groups and people. God brings peace into our lives each and everyday. We do not want wars as there is no peace when we are at war with other nations. When we are at peace we have harmony, tranquility and we are not anxious about things in our lives. Relax and unwind and slow down to find peace in your life. To have peace with God and others do not seek revenge, obey Gods commandments, and help people grow their faith in God.
Everyone wants to and needs to be loved by someone. We have God, friends and family that love us. Love is a deep feeling of affection toward someone or something. Sometimes one will say I love pumpkin pie or that they love to go on a vacation as these are some of their favorite things in life that they find pleasure in. Love is a deep romantic attachment to someone that you have grown close to over time. I love my cats as they bring pleasure and joy into my life. Love of God is associated with worship and devotions toward God. Love bears all things and love never ends. God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in him shall not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16 The basic meaning of love is more than liking someone. Love means you are deeply committed or connected to someone or something. Love is patient, love is kind, it does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 1 Corinthians 13 : 4 – 8
