So we have tried something a little different today. We decided to take the plunge into the world of video. In our video you will see that we do not take ourselves very seriously. We hope you enjoy this fun video insert.
Joy Joy Joy we all need Joy! One too many times, joy is being robbed from us. One of the definitions of the word robbed is: to take property unlawfully from someone or depriving somebody of something needed, deserved or significant.
Lets just take that in for a minute
Joy is actually ours, regardless of life around us, it is ours and we need to start claiming our joy back.
These past few weeks has been undoubtedly really rough for me to deal with. Just everything around me was uncertain, I’m not sure if you have been in such a position? Where literally EVERYTHING in your life was not a given and the future was actually so fearful to think of. I mean friendships, personal life and especially with university. There has been countless times where I have weeped because I was frustrated and never knew what to do.
I got to a place where the unknown made me scared and ultimately replaced my joy with fear. This was unhealthy in many ways and I had to put myself in a position where I allowed God to be God and by allowing him to be my consistency, to be my peace to be my truest friend because the love He offers is perfect and His perfect love cast out all fear.
“Such love has no fear, because perfect love expels all fear. If we are afraid, it is for fear of punishment, and this shows that we have not fully experienced his perfect love” 1 John 4:18
The best thing that has happened to me was Jesus, His love, His promises and His presence has allowed me to step out of fear and into Joy!
