Small Moments of Peace and Joy

There are times when we are in the midst of a really heavy and difficult situation, and something happens that causes us to laugh. We could be mourning someone we lost, but a memory of them brings us joy or is funny to us. God knows what it takes to get us through tough times, and He is always there to give us the help we need. When we have anxiety, God is there to console us and give us joy. When we are sad, He is there to wipe our tears and maybe even provide us with a little humor to keep us going. When we are down, He reminds us that the world is in His hands and everything is going to work out. In the end, Jesus will return to dwell with His people, and “‘He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’ or mourning or crying or pain” (Revelation 21:4). And Jesus also promised His followers, “Surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age” (Matthew 28:20). We are never alone in any kind of difficult situation. God is always with us. He knows what we are going through, and He is helping us. It can feel good to know that, as we seek God, He is going to provide for us, no matter what we face, and He will always make sure that we have moments of peace and joy in the midst of all the struggles. • Emily Acker • Have you ever felt God with you in a really hard time? • God invented laughter and humor! Can you think of a time you were struggling but something funny made you feel a little better? Consider taking a moment to thank God for this. When anxiety was great within me, your consolation brought me joy. Psalm 94:19 (NIV)
