Our Joy and Strength

“Earth has no sorrow that heaven cannot heal.” Thomas Moore

Nehemiah said, “Go and enjoy choice food and sweet drinks, and send some to those who have nothing prepared. This day is holy to our Lord. Do not grieve, for the joy of the LORD is your strength.” (Nehemiah 8:10)

Having joy in difficult times is very hard, but possible. We must remember where the source of our joy comes from. Our joy should be found in the Lord not in things of this world.   When our joy is found in the Lord we can be joyful in all things at all times. Of course we will have times of grief and sorrow, but we must not let these times consume us to the point that we become weak.
