Smile even if you are hurting. Be happy even if you are unhappy. It’s called strength!
Jesus didn’t call us to be Christians. He called us to be Disciples.
Jesus didn’t promise us a rose garden. He did guarantee that if we follow Him, we would have a joy no one can understand. Submission leads to happiness.
I can smile if I am hurting. I have Jesus, I have His strength and I can be happy in Him. I have Jesus and I have his courage.
