God’s Joy is Your Strength

Nehemiah 8:9-12 NRSV

Then he said to them, “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

We may be saddened by the events of yesterday; but, go in the strength of today, knowing that each new day brings a new opportunity for the joy of the Lord to be made manifest in our lives.
