This is the reason I have chosen “Be of Good Cheer” as the theme for 2021 at Damascus Way Recovery. At some point in our lives, or at the present moment, many of us have experienced various tribulations. It is difficult to maintain a passionate and positive disposition where we are maintaining good spirits. We are not alone. Christ strengthens us, gives us the hope we need, and through our humility and submission to our Heavenly Father’s divine grace and will. The burden of facing our sufferings will be lightened.
Today, we do well to focus on the teachings of our Heavenly Father. Work to walk in faithful obedience to His divine and righteous council. Stand firm on the truth of His personal revelation and will for our lives. Sit with those who are working out their faith with fear and trembling and fighting the good fight (See, Philippians 2:12 and 1 Timothy 6:12, KJV).
