Whenever we have to overcome an obstacle in our lives, we are thinking about a million different things. Our minds race. We might even be aware that our Creator is there to help.


But have you ever considered that even when life gets tough, you can still have joy?


Romans 12:12 says, “Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.”


Sheila Walsh has said that what got her through a bout of depression was the knowledge that God the Father loved her, and wanted the best for her.


Today, one of her missions in life is to help others recover their joy, by pointing them to the Lord. The truth is, this life sometimes beats us up, but those circumstances don’t have to win. It isn’t inevitable.


It’s when we learn to rejoice while clinging to hope that true join comes.


Let’s pray.


Lord, in our lowest moments, we cling to you and your promises. Thank you for that joy.
