When We Are Joyless
“And do not be grieved, for the joy of the Lord is your strength.” Nehemiah 8:10 (ESV)
When we are joyless we can turn to our Lord on Calvary and allow His joy to fill our mind, hearts, and soul. When sadness sinks us low in despair or fear for our future, it is in Jesus that we can be lifted by His love, His righteousness, His salvation. Out of the pain of the cross comes joy that lasts and strength to know that we too will not just survive but thrive in eternity.
Let’s pray today that we will not remain in despair but will turn to Calvary and find strength from His joy.
