Larmani (not her real name) is one believer with an infectious joy and energy. *Her patent phrase is, “God is good, all the time”*. It’s rare not find her with a psalm and song of praise.
*All this changed in Larmani’s life when she encountered a series of storms*. First it was an engagement broken, just months to her wedding, then an unexpected job loss. Her world came tumbling, she lost her song and demeanour. Who will not.
*The devil works on a two-prone attack deny, deplete or kill our faith and joy in the Lord*. He either blinds us to God or to His goodness, especially in our ‘strange lands’ of storms. Yet that is when we need Him and His joy most.
“… I still dare to hope when I remember this: The faithful love of the Lord never ends! His mercies never cease…His mercies begin afresh each morning (Lam. 3:21-23, NLT)
*Whatever else the devil takes, never let go of your song of joy, for that is our strength and victory!*
