But we praise God that we have Someone - so faithful - to turn to, our Lord Jesus. This October Issue of JOY! is packed with features and articles geared for teaching, equipping, informing and blessing our readers.

As we celebrate Father’s Day this month, why not make a special effort to reach out to your biological father, stepdad, grandfather or even spiritual father and voice your thanks and appreciation for them. We are all so busy, and often forget to make the time to voice our gratitude to those who are in our lives. If you have lost a parent, you can still celebrate father’s day by blessing the elderly folk in your local old-age home with a visit, a cake, or a small gift.A JOY! subscription is a wonderful gift for dad, granddads and ministers. Why not bless them with this year-long gift for Father’s Day? It is very affordable and so easy to arrange, just email for info.

Oh how we all need wise counsel and direction from the Lord each day! Living in these times can be quite frustrating, scary, confusing, demanding and uncertain. The Lord has commanded us to consider Him in all our ways and not to worry and fret - He loves us and will direct our footsteps. How comforting and reassuring. This month we celebrate Mothers - so don't forget to bless your mom with a JOY! gift subscription for Mother's Day.
We also provide a 10-page Drug Rehab Feature, which can be helpful for those who are enslaved by the bondage of substance abuse and need a helping hand to lift them out of the pit and direct them to God's ultimate healing and freedom.

February / March 2015

“Behold I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.” Luke 10:19   We have been given authority by God to face every battle and difficulty that may arise. There is no reason for Christians to feel overwhelmed, weak and defeated by all the trouble and turmoil in the world around us; we need to read the Word of God daily and renew our minds on what the Lord says about every situation (Romans 12:2,3).
The articles in this issue will challenge you to become the salt and light in society and offer hope to the hopeless. The world needs us to stand strong in prayer and be confident in the authority that God has given us.
