God rejoices because ONE of His children who was lost has been found
God rejoices. Not because the problems of the world have been solved, not because all human pain and suffering have come to an end, not because thousands of people have accepted him and are now praising him for his goodness. No, God rejoices because ONE of His children who was lost has been found. What I am called to is to enter into that joy . It is God’s joy, not the joy that world offers. It’s is the joy that comes from seeing a child walk .
