We ain't gonna cancel joy.

We’re seeing the suspension of a heck of a lot at the moment.

It’s discouraging.

Heartbreaking.

Worrying.

But let’s boldly decide NOT to cancel joy.

Or hope.

Or peace.

And lean into Jesus at this time.

What is he showing you right now?

Below is a video I made today, for the community centre I work at.

I hope it reminds you you’re not alone in this.

Love,

Ali

  1. Dear Ali, thank you for this lovely effort and dedication to serve our Lord Jesus Christ and you’re seeking His guidance to serve! I’m very touched and moved by your heart and work that you do in the community!
    No suspension of our belief and faith in Jesus Christ who is always with us and to allow Him to handle what we aren’t required to, but to continue being inspired by Him to encourage and serve those in need where and when we can to also receive God’s love and hope for His children, for He alone is our Savior and Redeemer.
    “For I, the Lord your God, hold your right hand; it is I who say to you, “Fear not, I am the one who helps you.” Isaiah 41:13

  3. Hello again Ali. I just said to myself as if a light lit up in my mind; what am I doing; I need to reblog this great effort of yours so I hope that you will be good with it without my trying to reach out and get your approval first. I’ve only done this twice before and both were in the past week because of this corona virus epidemic; so maybe I’m on a roll, and it just seems to fit, because as the old adage goes “third time is the charm.” It refers to the belief that the number three is a magical number; therefore, doing anything three times would make it magically succeed. Of course, you I’m sure like myself have no belief in flights of fancy or in plain simple Truth, anything good that comes must do so through the blessing of our Lord Jesus Christ and therefore the number 3 can only mean one thing in this type of scenario, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit! Amen. 🙏 🙏 🙏
    It’s always been my favorite number in truth, even when some of the dudes or wise guys said two is company but three is a crowd! I know better when I comes to counting! Maybe a bit of the More the Merrier!

  4. Reblogged this on Zero Lift-Off and commented:

    I’d like to share this beautiful and kindly effort with you by my fellow blogger and Christian Friend Ali. Her work is highly commendable and noteworthy and I was so inspired by this latest positive message from her that I was truly moved and felt the Spirit of our Lord Jesus Christ moving in this very troubling time with so many doubts swirling around the planet; but here we have Ali my Christian Sister giving me a shot to my heart of the only medicine that matters, the one true cure for anything that ails any of us and it comes to us direct from God in heaven if we just have an open heart to receive it. Ali is a motivator and she certainly motivated my positive energy that I admit can be dampened or skewed at times by the actual resentment I develop toward some very nasty people running amuck on this planet doing great harm and not caring who they pull down in the process. But let me include here what I had to say to Ali just before I realized I had to take this action.

  5. Oh BTW, I didn’t explain exactly what I meant about the video link, it is fine as is with the blog, but if anyone had a device to insert just the link into a browser to view it, then they would need the link adjusted is all,no biggy.
