Ok…Sometimes You have to Laugh!

True, there is not much to laugh about when it comes to world events these days, but leave it to The Babylon Bee to come up with a gem! Please note: The Babylon Bee is admittedly a Christian satire news site, NOT a site of real news reporting. It should not be used as a primary source of information, but rather a laugh now and then.

Check this out:

In difficult, and sometimes frustrating times, we are wise to recall the source of our joy. It is not the news, it is not even the satire emanating from the news. Our joy is in the One who is faithful and promises us refuge!

11 But let all those rejoice who put their trust in You;
Let them ever shout for joy, because You defend them;
Let those also who love Your name
Be joyful in You.
12 For You, O Lord, will bless the righteous;
With favor You will surround him as with a shield.

~Psalm 5:11-12

Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoices;
My flesh also will rest in hope.
10 For You will not leave my soul in Sheol,
Nor will You allow Your Holy One to see corruption.
11 You will show me the path of life;
In Your presence is fullness of joy;
At Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.

~Psalm 16:9-11

Finally, friends, be reminded of this: God is indeed angered by evil in our world. Some of it touches us all, much of it touches each individually. If you are burdened mentally, physically or emotionally by evil, be assured that joy comes in the morning. (Psalm 30:4-5) Bible students have read the textbook and know how it ends! Indeed, eternal joy is coming our way!
