“Go your way, eat the fat and drink sweet wine and send portions of them to those for whom nothing is prepared, for this day is holy to our Lord; and do not be grieved, for the joy of the Lord is your strength” Nehemiah 8:10
To live with joy, we have to share all we have, (send portions of them to those for whom nothing is prepared), (and do not be grieved). Let us stop worrying, grumbling, complaining….in short let us stop anything that will take away our joy! Let us begin to share, even if we have only a little. The Lord will multiply our little for us. Let us surrender our fears to Jesus, for He says to us over and over again “do not be afraid” let us begin to trust Him. As we prepare in this way for Jesus, we will notice our anxieties and fear lift and the joy of Jesus settle in our hearts and consequently in our family.
(Thank you Jane for we should always remember that "the joy of the Lord is our strength,Very good reflection). (New World).
