JOY IS A JEWEL
A “life-changing message.” – Nancy James, author of Mourning to Morning
“JOY IS A JEWEL is a passionate love story of Carolyn’s journey with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and the “joy unspeakable and full of glory” which could not be stolen from her in the midst of suffering, trials, and adversity.” Pastor C. Sissom
“I am so thrilled to share the blessings of God’s promised blessings of JOY within in this book with others. Counting my blessings and praising God for our friendship, Carolyn. You are a gem!!!” “I am using “Joy” as my daily devotional.” – Bet Amante (Author of Terra Cotta)
AROUND THE WORLD…
In the beginning of the year (January 2016), I read an article about the church in Malaysia suffering severe persecution. It came to me by the Spirit that I could take my http://www.facebook.com/joyisajewel/ page and pay for an ad to Malaysia. It just cost me $5. I wanted to encourage the persecuted church and let them know we care. Well, lo and behold, I got 400 likes for my ad! The persecuted church is alive and well in Malaysia!
I’ve traveled around the world doing short-term missions and I do pray regularly for the persecuted church. Therefore, the name of my ministry, for well beyond 20 years, is “His Inheritance Ministries” or “HIM” for short, because it’s all about Him, the Savior Jesus Christ.
Psalm 2 states:
7 I will tell of the decree:
The LORD said to me, “You are my Son;
today I have begotten you.
8 Ask of me, and I will make the nations your heritage,
and the ends of the earth your possession.
The earth is the LORD’s! And it is coming to pass. Former Muslims are coming to the LORD by the droves! There will be “seated in heavenly places” a harvest of souls from every tongue and nation. Let this be an encouragement to you! Prophecies from the Holy Scriptures are being fulfilled as we near the end of the age.
“And they sang a new song, saying, “Worthy are you to take the scroll and to open its seals, for you were slain, and by your blood you ransomed people for God from every tribe and language and people and nation…” Revelation 5:9
After Malaysia, it came to me by the Spirit, that I could put out posts around the world! It is more effective than a tract! (I put out plenty of them in the past, also!)
So this is a new ministry, started in the beginning of the year 2016. To be sending out posts to all the world through http://www.facebook.com/joyisajewel/ just seems an appropriate task for His Inheritance Ministries!
Our hope is to encourage Christians around the world. The joy of the LORD is your strength!! We need joy to go forward and we have eternal JOY!
“Weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning.“ Psalm 30:5
Please pass this along to encourage more Christians!
Holman Christian Standard Bible gives this version above.
“All my springs are in You.” (ESV)
“All my fountains are in You.” (NIV)
The source of all true joy is the LORD!
