If there is one verse I would say epitomizes the theme of Finding Joy Beyond The Headlines it’s this one:
PSALM 112:7 (NLT) “They do not fear bad news; they confidently trust the Lord to care for them”
It’s the verse I sign on every copy of FJBTH. It perfectly fits the purpose of the book.
YES, there is plenty of bad news. YES, there is plenty to fear. Flip on any headline service this week. TV news, internet, radio… it doesn’t matter. Headlines lead to fear in many instances. Fear of those headlines is not where God wants you to live. He knows there is a better posture. He knows putting our trust in him will lead to an incomparable peace.
PHIILIPPIANS 4:7 (ESV) “And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”
Today, when the headlines scream out for your attention, trust in the Lord to care for you and deliver you towards incredible peace.
