They passed by together.
5 They saw it, and so they marveled;
They were troubled, they hastened away.
6 Fear took hold of them there,
9 We have thought, O God, on Your lovingkindness,
In the midst of Your temple.
WE CAN BE JOYFUL AND AFRAID AT THE SAME TIME. THE WOMEN AT THE TOMB OF JESUS WERE AFRAID AND JOYFUL AT THE SAME TIME. HE WAS NOT THERE. HE WAS RISEN. TELL GOD ABOUT YOUR FEARS, YOUR JOYS. RELAX IN HIS PRESENCE. ASK HIM TO BLESS YOU WITH HIS JOY EVEN IN YOUR FEARS. TODAY IN THIS YEAR NEW FROM GOD LET NOTHING SEPARATE YOU FROM HIS LOVE.
