Romans 12:12(NIV) Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.
We wait in hope for the Lord
He is our help and our shield
In him our hearts rejoice
For we trust in his holy name (See also Psalm 33:20)

There are moments however, and those increasing the longer I walk and wait for Him, when I am overwhelmed with a joyous peace and even though I am always feeling a “thumb in my back” to get things done. I find myself able to be at a greater peace in those circumstances than I ever thought possible. It is to the honor and glory of God that I claim this joy through the working of His Holy Spirit.
