Core Value 18: How can I feel joyful when my life and the world around me are falling apart?
First, let’s understand what God prescribes in a Psalm from David: “…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.
