It is the joy of the Lord that is our strength in any situation, and we can and should have joy in Him in any and every situation.

There is a joy that we should have because we know the King, and we know that He has authority over all things. He will also cause all things to work together for good for His people, and this joy can be grown in our lives.
1. Watch over the seeds that are sown in your heart and mind.
2. Do not focus on your personal tragedies as much, but determine that you are going to thank the Lord for everything He has allowed in your life because it is sure to bring good.
Proverbs 17:22; A joyful heart is good medicine. Did you know that laughter is one of the wonderful gifts that God has given to us, and we need to do it often, for there is healing in joy! This is why holy laughter actually resulted in many people getting healed and freed from yokes of bondage.
Rejoice in the Lord always, I say rejoice! for our light affliction which is just but for a moment will work for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory.
Your best days are ahead of you.⭐️
