Then, Jesus. He put Psalm 118 in my lap to remind me that this day, and these weeks of feeling depleted were crafted by his own hand. He restored my heart to remember that when we have Jesus, we have everything!!!
As I’ve watched those around me struggle in these times, I’ve wondered what to do. Now I see that the best gift I can offer is audacious joy. If we hold on to gratitude and delight in Jesus through whatever comes our way, they can discover joy in him as well. Gladness in Christ can infuse our home and those around us. Its light will chase our doubts and fears right out the door.
In rejoicing, we heal. We hope. We carry on with strength and courage through it all.
