Joy in Uncertain Times

A worried woman

You have put more joy in my heart than they have when their grain and wine abound.—Psalm 4:7 (ESV)

Uncertainty, like change, is a word that makes most people uncomfortable. We want to know what is coming and often make the mistake of thinking we can’t relax or be joyful if we don’t know what tomorrow brings. Trusting God is the cure to fearing the unknown. When your faith is strong you can celebrate right now, trusting the future is in His hands.

Today's Prayer:

Heavenly Father, my joy doesn’t depend on my circumstances, it depends on You.
