"You will go out with joy and be led forth with peace." (Isaiah 55:12) There are lots of things in our world today that cause us to have much worry and stress. How do we live with and deal with these things that steal our joy? The first thing I do is to remind myself that God is still in control and He is still at work bringing all things to a conclusion that results in His greater glory. Then I leave it in God's hands and relax. You may have a lot of pressure on you that is intense. Several "joy stealers" might be waiting outside your door, ready to pounce at the first opportunity. Remember, however, that nothing can rob you of your hold on grace, your claim to peace, or your confidence in God without your permission. Choose joy and never release your grip!
