I want you to be filled with My joy, which will be your strength. I want you to rest in My love and be at peace.

Sometimes your expectations are unrealistic and cause you to overextend yourself, and then you end up feeling that you failed or didn’t make the grade. I want to wipe away all those negative feelings. I want to wipe away your fears and worries, and give you peace. All is well.

As the scripture says, “The joy of the Lord is your strength!” You can hold on to that promise. That can be your motto from this day forth, no matter what challenges you are facing. Fear and worry are debilitating and dampen your personal happiness. So relax. Trust Me.

Let My joy be your strength. Rejoice in your victories. Rejoice in the challenges. Rejoice in the blessings. Rejoice in the triumphs. Rejoice in the changes. Rejoice, rejoice, rejoice! Do not dwell on your seeming defeats. Knowing Me is a joyous experience! I know it’s not always easy, and there are a lot of trials, pain, and suffering along the way, but there can always be the joy of My Spirit in your heart.
