If these are not good enough reasons for you to jump for joy, try to spend time understanding their meaning and you too will appreciate why God’s people, no matter where they are, what they go through, He never leaves them or forsake them. They have the gift of eternal life and are truly blessed by their maker; why worry about anything else? Fear not, for God is with you, do not be dismayed He is your God and NO ONE is able to snatch you out of His hand. For this, we have reasons to be happy. Don’t worry, be happy! God bless you.
