God promises that we can have joy in our lives, and there doesn’t seem to be any parameters or limits on which of life’s circumstances (or tragedies) don’t qualify.
We are the ones who have to decide that we want joy back in our lives again and be willing to work for it after the death of our child.
How do we do that? Especially when we aren’t sure we can get out of the darkness, finding hope, much less joy.
In this episode, we talk about a few things that keep us from being able to pursue joy, which has gone dormant inside of you. Even if you aren’t ready to think about the possibility, the things discussed when applied with God’s help, will get you moving in the right direction to find your way out of the darkness and to a place of hope, light and yes, even joy eventually.
