The joy of the Lord is my strength!! How often have we quoted this without fully comprehending and believing that it is so in our lives today and always. Life’s many trials and circumstances may cause us to feel weak and even despondent at times, but we can remember the name of the Lord and rejoice knowing that He is our provider and our waymaker. We know that this is so, because we serve a faithful God who has proven himself to us time and time again. This joy that I have the world didn’t give it to me, and the world can’t take it away!! Through the good and the bad I will lean on my heavenly Father, and trust Him to guide me through it all!! Storms may rise, but I am safe because my Father is there to protect me! He’s there for you too!! He is your joy in sorrow!! He is your provider when you have a need!! He is your healer when your mind and body are wracked with pain!! He calms the storms with simply a word from on high, “Peace. Be still.” I am forever grateful to know and abide with a loving God who cares for me and cares for you too!!! I may feel weak and you may feel weak at times, but our God is strong and mighty!! Trust Him!! He’s got this issue under control!! He’s got us in the palm of His loving hands!!
