The psalmist David said,
This is the day that the Lord has made, that we may rejoice and be glad in it.” The power of Joy can change worry, anger and sorrow. It is good to rest in God because He is going to take care of you.
“Find out how to enjoy life right now while He is working on your problem. It is time to put joy in your heart!”
This was the message of the Women Together Sports Day at Multimedia University sports grounds, on October 14, 2017.
We were very thankful to God for the great opportunity and favor to be at this facility. Because of the political situation in our country just now, there is unrest and fear of having any gathering.
In this safe space, women and young girls had good times together, running around the big field, enjoying athletic competitions, playing football and netball and especially laughing together and cheering for one another. It was so much fun as girls were hugging their mothers at the finishing point, shedding tears of joy. This has never happened before!
Women we don’t have to let the devil take our joy away from us, no matter what is going on in our country. We need to stay as happy as we can, because then we will have the strength to face whatever comes our way.
The devil wants to bring discouraging things to our lives and make us believe that life is full of disappointment. So many women are hurting and joyless. They seem to be carrying heavy burdens.
Don’t let whatever is happening around you tempt you to worry too much as you try to reason your way out of the circumstance. Nehemiah 8:10 says, ‘Be not grieved and depressed, for the joy of the Lord is your strength and stronghold,’
When women pray together mighty things happen!
