"Worry is a place of pain -- let's come away from there. Worry is practicing the absence of God's presence; Joy is the practice of breathing in God's Presence...God's very name YHVH (יהוה) means "Presence" --- I AM.
"You make known to me the path of life: in Your PRESENCE there is fullness of JOY." Ps. 16:11
The present moment is the only place joy can be received --- because it is the very place where God's presence is: I AM. So just for today? Keep breathing deep & Practice the Present Moment: Joy is always the practice of breathing in God's Presence..."
