"You are designed to have joy God's joy!"
You can experience God's joy because "there is a God who smiles"! In this companion book to the popular Jesus, Man of Joy, best-selling author Sherwood Wirt gives a uniquely fresh view of a basic but neglected side of God's character joy.
* WHERE DOES GOD'S JOY FIT INTO MY LIFE?
* HOW CAN I EXPERIENCE MORE OF THE JOYFUL SIDE OF GOD AND MY FAITH?
* WHAT CAN I DO IF I FEEL THERE IS NOTHING TO BE JOYFUL ABOUT?
* WHAT IS MY BIGGEST BARRIER TO JOY AS A CHRISTIAN?
* WHAT MAKES GOD SMILE, AND HOW CAN I REFLECT HIS SMILE TODAY?
Warm, uplifting, and personal, The God Who Smiles will point you back to God's original plan a plan that designed you specifically to function on His joy. If you want more of God's joy in your life or need encouragement, you will find inspiration here to lead you to gladness of heart and the God who smiles!
