Welcome to Joy in Troubled Times

Is it possible to have joy in troubled times?  These truly are troubled times. With a worldwide pandemic, can we still find joy in these troubled times. The joy God gives does not depend on outward circumstances.  It is a gift He gives when we accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior.  God’s joy comes from knowing He is in control and is with us.  It is knowing He is our Salvation, Protector, Friend and Lover of our soul.  Nothing can happen to us that He doesn’t allow.  Psalms 121:1-2 says, “I lift up my eyes to the mountains—where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth.”

Knowing God Cares and is with Us Gives Us Joy in Troubled Times

No situation is too dark or overwhelming for God to handle.  In this site you will discover joy in a hospital room, in sickness, in health, in good times and bad. God can give us a sense of joy in even troubled times.  In November 2015, my husband Richard fell out of a tree while bow hunting.  He had four fractures in his spine and lung damage.  After he was rushed to a hospital by ambulance a hundred miles from home he lay in a hospital bed with neither of us knowing what the future held.  A scripture came to my mind, “All things work together for good to those who love God and are called according to His purpose.” Romans 8:28 I shared the scripture with Richard and we both knew God had a bigger plan than we could see.  After intensive care, two surgeries and bleeding pneumonia Richard drove both of us home from the hospital with faith that, All things do work for good to those who love God.   Read how we both found “Joy in Troubled Times”.
