I just finished reading Fight Back with Joy by Margaret Feinberg. My husband brought this book home from the Catalyst conference back in October and I have read it slowly because it was a tough read.
Here are some of my favorite quotes from the book:
- God is an unconventional teacher.
- Practicing defiant joy is the declaration that the darkness does not and will not win. When we fight back with joy, we embrace a reality that is more real than what we’re enduring and we awaken to the deepest reality of our identity as beloved, joyful children of God.
- Jesus arrives in joy, departs in joy, and calls us to great joy through fellowship with him.
If you have ever walked through a tough time, or maybe your in one right now, this book will give you a new perspective. Today I will find joy, despite what my situation.
