It’s easy to be overwhelmed by the pain, suffering and evil that seem to be everywhere you look. But there’s something far more powerful than all of them put together – God’s joy. This joy does not simply mask suffering, pain and evil. It springs forth from the heart of God and unleashes you to be compassionate instead of overwhelmed by suffering, hopeful instead of depressed by pain and a difference-maker instead of stymied by evil. So when you encounter gloom and doom, choose to let God’s joy be your joy!
