Take a couple of deep breaths.
Recall that you are in the presence of God.
You are loved and blessed.

1 Peter 1:3
3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! By his great mercy he has given us a new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead

Even before I did anything to deserve God’s love, he loved me and gave me the hope to live with Him for all eternity. Jesus rose from the dead, and he promised the if I follow Him I will also rise. John 10.27-28 “My sheep hear my voice. I know them, and they follow me.
28 I give them eternal life, and they will never perish. No one will snatch them out of my hand”. Can I accept Him at His word?

Do I feel joy at the prospect of God’s promise?
Who do I want to share my joy with?

Pray to God, using these words or others as you see fit.
Holy God,
Thank you for loving me.
Thank you for your showing me that life after death is possible.
Help me to feel the joy that only comes from you.
Let that joy envelope my total being.
Help me to see you more clearly.
Help me to love others as you love them.
