Greetings from Pastor YouJung Jung
Every day we check the news about the covid. Even though I have been with you here just one and half month, I know the church has been working so hard to make the church a safe place and you have been eager to go back to normal before Covid. For a fleeting moment this summer, it seemed like we were going back to normal. However, we’ve faced a future of the uncertainty again because of the Delta Variant Covid. Life with Covid and so much uncertainty in our world makes it so tough that anxiety and depression can come upon us all of a sudden. Then how should we deal with these negative feelings and uncertainty?
Look closely and recognize the daily joys that God brings into our lives, and actually laugh out loud with and within God, our Father. God gives us the gifts of laugh and joy, so we want our mouth to be filled with laughter and tongues with the song of joy (Psalm 126). So have faith in God , stay cheerful and positive and don’t let this new variant pull us down with negative feelings.
A cheerful heart is good medicine,
but a crushed spirit dries up the bones (Proverbs 22:17 ).
