It's Faith Friday! Join us as we delve into this inspiring message of how to hold joy and pain at the same time. Exploring personal insights and relatable experiences, we navigate the complexity of emotions and the understanding of how our spirit and heart integrate. From finding hope in scriptures to overcoming despair through faith, we share stories of choosing joy amidst life’s challenges. Tune in to discover the power of faith and find strength in every circumstance.  

Psalm 42:5 “Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God.”  

We can learn from Paul and Silas by unpacking their story of praise amidst pain in Acts chapter 16.  

Something to ponder: In times of adversity, how can we follow the example of Paul and Silas in choosing to praise and hold onto faith, even when faced with challenging circumstances?  

Thank you for joining us on this faith-filled journey. Remember, you, too, can hold joy and pain simultaneously, finding strength and hope in every circumstance. Check out my Instagram for more faith-filled content!
