2016 taught me some trying & painful lessons. In all that, I also learned that joy can coexist with sorrow & suffering. Joy doesn’t come from the absence of sorrow, but from the presence of God. Joy is what provides hope in the midst of the storm.
The Joy of the Lord is & has been my strength. “Scars and struggles on the way, but with joy my heart can say, never once did I ever walk alone. Never once did He leave me on my own. You are faithful, God, You are faithful!”
Go to verses for me: Psalm. 119:71 – Isaiah 43:2 – Psalm 46:1-2 – Habakkuk 3:17-19 – Job 23:10-12 – Psalm 23:4
What a year!
