Much of what causes us anxiety, to be controlling or to desperately grasp for some system to ensure that things turn out right are the result of fear.
And fear, beside being not of God, is the cause of an abundance of bad decisions and bad feelings.
But know that God loves us and that God’s grace is shown powerfully going through things and as well as being delivered out of them can give us great peace, and even joy.
It’s been a mystery to me that the Joy of the Lord is our Strength. I sporadically keep a blog about this journey, and thought you may like to visit it as well. I would love for you to contribute your thoughts and testimonies of God’s joy being your strength!
