Father, I have joy and comfort, knowing I am where you called me to be. There is no place that reassures my heart and renews my soul like being within the circle of your will. I thank you in the name and authority of Jesus, who calls us to follow him, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.

“By this my Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit and so prove to be my disciples. As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Abide in my love. If you keep my commandments, you will abide in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commandments and abide in his love. These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full.” (John 15: 8-11 ESV)
