SUBTITLE: God Gives Joy When Days Are Dark – 52 Devotions
SUMMARY: “All glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think,” writes Paul to the church in Ephesus (Eph. 3:20). “Sometimes we find ourselves feeling increasingly discouraged and powerless, even depressed. It is humanly impossible to always stay strong in all circumstances,” writes Nina Smit in her brand-new devotional When Joy Escapes Me. But there is hope, she says. It is wonderful to know that in tough times when you do lose heart or feel low, God knows your circumstances and is willing and able to help you. In When Joy Escapes Me, Nina offers 52 devotions that will remind readers that the best medicine for negative emotions such as despair and helplessness is the knowledge that God knows your situation and wants to walk with you through it. You can be sure that He will be with you during every moment of the crisis you face, supporting you with His miraculous power. On your “off” days, use this daily devotional to inspire you and gift you a lift!
