Be happy and joyful!
In a time when there is so much uncertainty in the world, it is easy to feel anxious, stressed and even fearful of what is to come. We don't know how long we will be facing this crisis that we are currently living in, and it is totally normal to have those emotions.
But even though it is okay to feel unweary at times, we have to remember that we cannot allow it to steal our joy. Our joy does not come from the things that are of this world. Our joy completely resides in Christ.
When you feel that moment of fearfulness or anxiety, use that moment to pray. As simple of a prayer like, "Lord, I ask you to replace this fear that I am experiencing for the joy that only You can give."
Do not fear my sisters (and brothers) in Christ. Even though these are uncertain times, we have a loving God who is never going to let go of us.
I will leave you with my favourite Bible verse:
'For I know the plans I have for you,' declares the Lord, 'Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.' (Jeremiah 29:11)
Let us trust that God is holding onto us, and with that we know that we can truly be happy and joyful!
