Having Joy in an Eccentric World

Hi Friends!

Have you recently considered 2 Timothy 1:7? The apostle Paul tells us, “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.”

A sound mind means well-adjusted; an explanation for why we can be full of joy when there is so much turmoil in our world.

When we reflect joy in the midst of a trial, we are considered by many to be eccentric or just weird.  Ha!

Eccentric is a mechanical term meaning off-center, out of balance, catty-wampus.  What a false description for believers!

Jesus is the center of the universe. He is the reason that physics, molecules,  and our physiology are held together so well.  When He is in the center of our lives, we are in harmony with the universe and Him!

People who choose to reject God’s truth are the off-balance, eccentric ones. The evidence is in our daily news.

My prayer for all of us is that we who are Christ-centered will have no spirit of fear and will keep shining the love of Jesus in a dark world.

Many blessings to you as you rejoice in His goodness!

In Christ always,

Carole
