I recently read Margaret Feinberg’s new book Fight Back with Joy. Tonight I’ll be joining a few other ladies to go through the six-week study together. Yay!
Yesterday afternoon I watched the introductory DVD lesson in preparation for tonight’s kick-off lesson.
The first main point Margaret makes in the video is this:
Joy emanates out of the abiding sense of God’s fierce love for us.
Tactic 1: Marinate in the truth of God’s fierce love for you.
This morning I went to church and one of the songs we sang was Furious by Jeremy Riddle.
Joy filled my heart as we sang these words:
His love is deep, His love is wide and it covers us
His love is fierce, His love is strong, it is furious
His love is sweet, His love is wild
And it’s waking hearts to life
Marinate in the truth of God’s fierce love for you.
This morning’s song almost felt like a precursor of what’s to come. It was a small taste, the appetizer, the dipping sauce.
I’m excited about this new study. My prayer is that our little group will soak up this truth and it will spill out into every area of our lives.
