Do not grieve, for the joy you have in Me is your strength.
This joy can be the difference between despair and a sense of well-being.
Even though you experience many trials, My joy will see you through.
You are trying to carry all these burdens on your own, in your strength.
I created you to depend on Me in all circumstances.
You were never designed to go it alone.
Let Me carry the weight for you.
I will carry you too and straighten the path ahead of you to make your journey one you can handle.
You must be confident in this knowledge and take it to heart. Rejoice always.
This day is holy to our Lord. Do not grieve, for the joy of the Lord is your strength.
Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die.”
