The Joy of the Lord is your strength. Hold on tightly to Me at every turn. I will not let you go. Reach for Me in the darkness, walk with Me in the light. Endure all things with all love and patience. For what recompense is it to you if you love only when loved? Be an example of the Christ-Love life. What did the Apostles know? They knew that it would not be easy. But they learned that it would be worth it. Are you following? Or are your running away? Do not be afraid. I will uphold you in the dark days of life. I will love you with an Everlasting Love.
