Greetings to all,
Have you been in times of difficulty? Have you been wondering about the times we live in, hearing about disasters that some are predicting?
Well I want to share with you that even in the midst of difficulty we have the One who said “I have come that you might have life and have it more abundantly.” Jesus’ word still applies; He came to be with us in every circumstance.
Because of Jesus we can have peace in the midst of every trial.
We need strength to go through difficult times and He has given us a secret to have all the strength we need. Ne 8:10 says “…Do not sorrow, for the joy of the LORD is your strength.”
The secret to gaining strength is to do things that bring joy to the Lord. It is His joy that releases strength in you. Ask the Lord what you can do that would bring Him joy, then with your faith receive His strength.
Sunday morning we will explore how our faith can shield us in difficult times.
Love to all,
