June Faith Focus: Joy
There are too many things in this world that try to rob us of our joy. Just take a look at the news and you’re sure to have a moment of despair as you think, “What is this world coming to?!”
In the parable of the good shepherd, Jesus said:
The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.
The work of Satan’s hand, the thief, is evident all around us. The earthly consequences of our sinful nature are inescapable. The hurt and sorrow of this world is real.
So, as women made for today, how do we maintain joy when there are so many things out there capable of destroying it?
You can start by remember that you are cared for by the Good Shepherd. In Him you have full life. In Him you have been granted eternity. In Him you have an abundance of joy.
