Do you remember the last time you were awake at 2 am with worry? I do. It was just two nights ago.
I was up all night. I wanted sleep so badly but my mind wouldn't stop.
Before I knew it, it was time to start the day.
While standing in the atrium at church, a gentleman came over and greeted me. He said I can always feel your joy radiating off of you here. That's the joy of The Lord.
If only he knew I had stayed up all night worrying.
It was a gentle reminder that the joy of The Lord is my strength. No matter how much I worry, fret, or am afraid. I trust in The Lord more than anything - and I take much joy from that!
