Do not grieve, for the joy of the Lord is your strength." Nehemiah 8:10
We all face things in life that get us down,
whether it's the death of a loved one,
or any other number of things.
But God's Word tells us not to grieve and find joy in the Lord. He is the great Comforter after all =) God bless!
The joy of the Lord is our strength in other words. We might not feel joy in the natural.
We may not even be happy.
But we can have the Joy that only the Lord gives.
I have some friends who lost their pre-teen son to leukemia years ago but I always found them cheerful and praising God.
I asked how they could do that.
They said we are to give thanks in all things,
and the joy of the Lord is our strength.
