“Even though there are times when we cannot see God or understand His plan, He is still there, watching and working all things together for our good. In Psalm 30, we read that the Lord will lift us up. I think of joy as that power which comes, sometimes unexpectedly, transcending circumstance, filling and raising our spirits, reminding us of the nearness of God. The joy of the Lord lifts us, miraculously, beyond our circumstances and into His presence and purpose.”
–Pastor Stephen Simpson
