I am so grateful that the Lord is with me every step of every day. He surrounds me with joy like Psalm 16 says, “You will fill me with joy in your presence.” I am so glad to serve a God that is close to the broken hearted, who knows the very number of hairs on my head, who says over and over “Do not be afraid.”
The God of the universe is working all things out for your good (Romans 8:28).
The joy of the Lord is my strength (Nehemiah 8:10).
So whether you can see a storm coming or it just drops in your lap, be like David when he says, “I keep my eyes always on the Lord, with him at my right hand I will not be shaken.”
